How do you make a truly ground-breaking bike? You can’t really pick up innovation from the automobile industry and transpose it on the bike industry. There’s a long way for a bike to go before you can make it “smart” right? I bet Google and Apple haven’t really kicked off smart-bike interactive projects (billion dollar idea, btw… you’re welcome). You could however attempt at making it autonomous. The BMW Motorrad Concept Z explores a road less walked on, or driven on. The Bike design adapts to commute and sport applications, but there’s also a third. The Bike comes with an Autonomous mode, where the rider literally lounges in his/her seat while the bike glides across from A to B. Sounds weird, doesn’t it! Self driving cars sounded weird a decade ago, btw.
Personal shout-out to young designers. Let’s see some absolutely crazy self-driving bike ideas! How about we make Yanko the epicenter for the Autonomous Bike movement, eh?? 😀
