This bike is known as the Uno Bike and has been invented and created by the 18 year old canadian, Ben Gulak. It is said that this electrical bike has been conceived from lessons learned from Segway device, but implemented in cooler package.
Brief Infos About The Bike
=> Has two wheels, side-by-side, and uses gyroscopic technology to stay upright
=> The wheels are independently operated making turning much more precise
=> Moves in the direction the rider leans (the more you lean, the faster you go)
=> To move backward, just lean back on the seat to tilt it backwards
=> Hits a top speed of 25 mph in its current configuration
=> Has a weight of 58kg
=> Has a range of 2.5 hours once it is charged from the mains
=> No controls except for an On-Off switch (so simple as that!)
“[..] it is designed for the commute to work through busy towns” says Gulak. “ I believe this could be electrical alternative to the car. I’m just looking for an investor to help me get it into production [..]”
Ben Gulak also claims that his innovative bike would help beat pollution and the design was inspired from a visit to China in 2006 – “The smog was so thick, we never saw the sun,” he said.
My Point Of View
Well, this is amazingly wonderful and this guy is a very talented engineer. He will surely prove his worth and his new bike in the incoming years. The idea and philosophy behind is great. It takes guts, trust and faith in our creative and talented, out-of-the-box, mind to come forward to show our thoughts. And those who can make it, will succeed undeniably!
Uno Bike Resembles Jeremy’s Bike In Code Lyoko?
Some of you might say that this bike should definetly have a connection with Jeremy Belpois’ virtual bike, from the famous Code Lyoko. :P :)
I end here with a trailer of Code Lyoko with Jeremy’s Uno Bike (you will see it precisely at 2mins,09secs in the video)
