This concept of a bike that can generate electricity, can be used as electric scooter that can be folded is a concept created by Marten Wallgren, Il Choi, David Seesing and Miika Hekkinen. They were inspired to have this concept because of the traffic situation in London. They have to imagine what the traffic in London will look like in 2030 and arrived to this Foldable Bike Concept.
“Our concept was to create a car-free-zone in the central of London, called London Garden. Inside this zone we developed a system created around bicycles. Allowing a special designed bicycle/scooter to be well integrated with the infrastructure as well as becoming a part of the interior of the busses and taxis. Inside London Garden, the users have more awareness of the individual energy consumption. In fact, the energy that you create while biking is used as a currency while docking the bicycle into the bus or taxi.” (from Marten Wallgren’s blog)
This Foldable Bike Concept is part of the “Future City Mobility” and won the Seymour Powell award. It has solar panels found on the wheels. It helps in generating electricity that is being stored in the bike.
I wonder how much will this cost.
