Coming Soon - Smart Wheels For Your Bike

Copenhagen Wheel: http://senseable.mit.edu/
Coming Soon - Smart Wheels for your bike that offer electric assist, and compile data about your ride and the environment.

Conceived and developed by the SENSEable City Lab for the Kobenhavns Kommune.
"Smart, responsive and elegant, the Copenhagen Wheel is a new emblem for urban mobility. It transforms ordinary bicycles quickly into hybrid e-bikes that also function as mobile sensing units. The Copenhagen Wheel allows you to capturethe energy dissipated while cycling and braking and save it for when you needa bit of a boost. It also maps pollution levels, traffic congestionand road conditions in real-time.
The Copenhagen Wheel is currently in final prototyping phase and will go commercial in June 2011 - the cost will be approximately $600 US per wheel. If you are interested in owning a wheel, producing, licensing or distributing, please join our mailing list so that we can keep in contact with you."
