Copenhagen Wheel to revolutionise cycling

The inventors at the MIT SENSEable City Lab are set to revolutionise cycling with their first commercial release of the Copenhagen Wheel. This elegant invention turns an ordinary bicycle into a ‘smart electric hybrid’ by simply replacing your back wheel. You can even download the complementary mobile app, which allows you to lock/unlock your wheel, choose amongst a menu of customisable rides, and track personal usage statistics including calories burned, time, distance, elevation climbed and more, all of which can be compared and shared with friends. Pre-order at http://www.superpedestrian.com and own a limited edition, hand-crafted Copenhagen Wheel, invented and built in Cambridge, MA.
