California based company, Mobiky, has release the world’s first foldable bike — the Genius. It supposedly took Mobiky 2 years of research and over $1 million in R&D to develop, so the least you can do is read this blog post.
The Mobiky Genius is a 3 speed city bike and can collapse into half its size in 2-3 seconds. The height is adjustable to fit almost any size person.
The Genius’s dimensions are 50″ x 18″ x 41″ and the bike collapses into 25″ x 12″ x 32″. That’s a great size for people like me who live in a small townhouse and would love to stash their bike in a closet.
Unfortunately, however, its 29 lb weight and not very impressive biking specs won’t win over any real biking enthusiasts. But for the casual biker who can afford the $999, its ability to store in your trunk or closet may just do the trick.
Oh and it looks nerdy.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
