Olympic cyclist Chris Boardman thinks that his beautiful Tron-like dream bicycle will never get stolen—even if it looks so cool that nobody would be able to resist. Fortunately, he says that they will be common in 20 years.
The new bike design has a built-in locking system that can only be activated and opened by the owner’s fingerprint. The computer-equipped machine can also monitor the amount of calories burned. Made of carbon fibre, it will even have a battery that will assist you when going up a steep hill, as well as puncture-proof, self-inflating tires.
Unfortunately, for now it is just a concept, even while Boardman believes “it could be built now if there was a will. All the technologies are already there, it’s just that nobody’s put them all together before.” The future is not coming soon enough. Heck, I would be glad if the weekend came already. [Daily Mail]
