Change bike gears with your mind on the Prius bike

Written By Francie Diep-Published March 12, 2012-TechMediaNetwork


AUSTIN –  There were about fifteen minutes before his presentation started, and Patrick Miller was worried about wireless interference. That's because he was about to demonstrate a bike whose gears he could change with his mind.

In 2011, Toyota commissioned the high-tech marketing firm Deeplocal to create an unusual Prius campaign. The firm came up with a mind-controlled bike. As Deeplocal's senior creative engineer, Miller was responsible for developing the wireless helmet system that brought brain waves to bike gears. Parlee Cycles, a company that makes carbon-fiber racing bicycles, crafted the bike's frame. They finished the project, called the Prius Project Concept Bike, in July 2011 and on March 9, 2012, showed it at the South by Southwest music, film and interactive conference.

Sounds very interesting, but I've thought of a possible problem. I now take my life in my hands when shooting down the hill into town a few times a week, and wonder if the odd lorry behind me might brake my spine as it crushes me into the road, so if I'm thinking brake will this bike not suddenly put the brakes on.LOL
What a handsome figure of a dragon. No wonder I fall madly in love with the Alani Dragon now, the avatar, it's a gorgeous dragon picture.
