hmk 561electricbike

This is not just a concept, there is a real working prototype.  Hard to believe I know, especially considering how forward thinking the HMK 561 bicycle is.  Aside from having a set of split set of wheels at either end, this bike of the future uses a special carbon fiber frame to pass electricity to the motors and lights, all the while storing some added juice much like a capacitor.  There’s even a regenerative braking system to help maximize the bike’s power in addition to some sort of a counter-turning axel in lieu of gears and chains, whatever that is.  It’s not entirely clear if each wheel contains its own motor and how fast it can travel, but since it lacks any peddles we can only hope it doesn’t get pegged for a being a scooter or motorcycle which would require some level of licensing to operate it.

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."
