Copenhagen Wheel: The Invention That Will Change Biking

Copenhagen Wheel: The Invention That Will  Change Biking | Health and Life Style | Scoop.it

The most common reason why people don’t bike is the amount of energy needed to do it.

 

Developed by researchers at MIT, this device snaps onto your bike and helps you conserve energy.  And it does it in an ingenuous, remarkable way.

 

It’s called the Copenhagen Wheel, and it stores the energy that you already use, and saves it for when you need it most.  Hills become flat, and you no longer have to expel loads of energy to get around.  Curious?  Watch the video for more information.

This is an awesome new innovation that will definitely help pollution and other causes by incentivising people to drive a bicycle more often. People wil be able to travel farther and more often due to the ease of biking with this new innovative bike.

This is essentially a new back wheel that can transform any bike into an electric-assisted vehicle, making it easier to pedal up those hills...
