Tron Light Cycle v Campbell

Tron Light Cycle v Campbell

Iterations and iterations! If there’s one thing a tech and design writer cannot possibly ignore or resist, it’s Tron. With this brand freaking new movie Tron: Legacy out now, the folks at Disney have basically a sure shot as far as the internet crowd goes, and for the most part, everyone riding on the wave has their own shot at fifteen minutes of fame. Here’s a designer taking that opportunity to the max with some alternate Light Cycle designs made for your pleasure!

Electric Motorbikes as Tires

Electric Motorbikes as Tires

Behold an electric motor vehicle who indeed does fit the mold of “more than meets the eye.” This is no robot though, it’s a compact urban city car, but what’s more is that its rear wheels transform into bikes. Each of these bikes have only a single tire, functioning on the same system as the Segway! The car with the bikes still integrated has a light weight structure, 2 parallel side panels and a bunch of cross panels making the car like a feather yet totally tough.

Imperial Flatboy Motorcycle

Imperial Flatboy Motorcycle

Star Wars influence? Inspiration taken from Daniel Simon? Yessir, indeed. This is a motorcycle concept going by the name “Bugatti startos” designed by Bruno Delussu. This name, Bugatti startos, means “Snake Road,” a fabulous name for a rather snake-like automotive. With a body made of fiberglass to make the entire thing light, setting the rider in the same place as a racing bike (lying on the bodywork,) and a cute traditional speedometer.

This is the “Urban Arrow,” a transport bike with electric pedal assistance, aluminum frame, and a box made ofsuper light EPP-material. It’s green, they say it’ll be affordable, it’s comfortable, it’s light enough to lift, and aesthetically, it’s super fresh.

Universally Customized

Universally Customized

If you are planning on being an urban crime fighter but still can’t justify the gas guzzling tendencies of most superhero vehicles, well your ride has (conceptually) arrived. Designer Jean Baptiste Robilliard has rendered up this “CUSTOM BIKE CONCEPT” that would make Bruce Wayne’s attorneys take notice. Jean Baptiste describes it as a “two wheel muscle car”, hiding it’s electrical drivetrain and batteries in the frame. Featuring a FORMULA 1 inspired KINETIC ENERGY RECOVERY SYSTEM (KERS), that essentially coverts your braking into energy.

Chopper Scooter, I'm Totally Serious

Chopper Scooter, I’m Totally Serious

If scooters are too passe for your bad boy, Jesse James lovin’ ego, check out this Chopper Scooter. The motorized mover was designed with linear lines and flowing shapes in mind – anything to hide it’s true identity. Great way to bring up those kids and get them all indoctrinated into the culture.

Skeletal Electrics on Two Wheels!

Skeletal Electrics on Two Wheels!

Oh my goodness, this is a shiny, sharp looking triad of motorcycle vehicles. Before you get down too far in the description, take note that the red and the black are diesel/electric engines while the gray is an electric only, working with the battery. Then below that in this project post’s gallery you’ll see the “shared” battery station, which is quite the looker and something I’d sure like to see in the real world for real. Designer Paolo De Giusti presents three Naked bikes.

Two Quarters Of A Bike

Two Quarters Of A Bike

TwoQuater is a power-assisted electric bicycle that folds up when necessary. It sources the power from a lithium battery, which housed at the back of the bike in a black case. The power-assist comes into play when riding uphill and during the downhill course it recharges the battery. For a subway ride or up the elevator, the bike folds into half, but if you need to stash it in your car’s trunk or stow it away, it can fold up further to become a quarter of its size.

The Energy Revolution in a Bike

Here we go, it’s another revolution. How many revolutions can this world take?! Someday we humans will blow the Earth up. You betcha.

And here, in this vehicle, is that revolution encapsulated. You drink the energy drink and the power comes out! You sit on the “OPEL EWOL”, put the energy of your body in, and SPEED comes out. Hot, futuristic speed.

Car Height Bike Ride

Car Height Bike Ride

This bike mimics the height at which you sit when you’re in a mid-sized car. That right there is amazing an innovation enough for me to do a post on it, but check it out, there’s more. The seat is also the same back angle and puts you in a place that allows your hands and feet to be in the same position as they’d be in your auto as well. Why? So you’re at eye-level with the rest of the traffic that’s flying around you. And it’s electric, if you want.

Cocoon on Wheels

Cocoon on Wheels

The name of this project is the “Hyundai Aebulle” concept car, and it’s designed by Shane Baxley. The word Aubulle, when translated directly from Korean, means “cocoon.” When you are in the cocoon, you are definitely cocooned. A sort of lay-down seating situation with the vehicle wrapped all around you. Cruising through the streets on a luge of Aubulle. The mobility and speed of a motorcycle with a cocoon-like safety for the body of the driver. Plus super fabulous light strips.
