Nulla Minimalist Bike

August 20, 2008

Designer Bradford Waugh came up with Nulla (meaning “nothing”) as a way of making bikes more stylish and lightweight. Lacking spokes, it uses a direct-gear-chain drive system, which leaves the bike looking like a simple set of open curves. It should able to work on a smooth street. Not for any stunts or off road use.

The Innervision is a plastic bicycle designed to be made from recycled plastic and for mass production.
It consists of two frames, both split into two halves. The inner section is ribbed with a triangular structure to stop it flexing, and the outer frame slots on over the top. These halves are then joined by welding.The rear forks are reinforced and it’s rigid and very light.
The prototype, by designer Matt Clark, is made from virgin plastic, but the plan is to make bikes from old food containers and other polypropylene waste.

Flute Handles reproduced the sound of a flute or an ocarina through the air rushing inside. An innovative idea for all those who love to listen to music rather than a honk or ring on their bicycle.

I think about this every time when I am driving and looking at cyclists in front of me peddling happily and not aware of the danger around them, that, how nice it would be if someone sells a signalling device for cyclist…
Made with lilypad arduino, LEDs, & wrist mounted switches for control.
