DailyDirt: Better Bikes

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

We've pointed out flying bikes and chainless bikes before, and there seems to be no end to the creativity of bike mechanics. Maybe no one ever forgets how to ride a bike, but bike technology seems to be getting a bit more complex than just balancing on two wheels. We don't quite have Star Wars speeder bikes yet, but perhaps we will soon. After you've finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

    How far does $100K go when you're developing a hybrid bike? That doesn't sound like a lot of funding to even get the quality control done on a regular motorcycle. Where is the Tesla of motorcycles?

    Re:

    They're not the "Tesla of motorcycles" as such, but have a look into electric bicycles.

    but it's really not that clear why this hoverbike is better than other quadcopter drones

    Calling it a hoverbike strongly suggests that the designer is working on keeping it down in the weeds and trees, and thinking about object avoidance. Being many feet in the air makes it awkward and slow to dive for cover when bullets come flying your way.
