A bike, with computer-like intelligence, which can never be stolen, has puncture-proof tyres, uses a solar-powered motor when you get tired, will play music and count calories while you ride, will be in everyday use by 2029, says British Olympic cyclist Chris Boardman.
Fingerprint recognition technology means that only the owner of the bike will be able to unlock it, spoke-less wheels makes it more aerodynamic, whilst self-inflating tyres mean punctures won’t occur.
All of the technology in this proposed bike is already available – it just needs to be put together.
If the bike went on sale today, it would cost £500,000. Once the bicycles are mass produced, Mr Boardman said they could sell for around £2,000.
The only downside I can see is the solar power technology to power the motor when you get tired. If you’re feeling sluggish at night…or in Britain, then you’ve got a problem!
