Chris Boardman’s Theft-proof & Puncture-free Bicycle

August 12, 2009

Olympic cyclist, Chris Boardman, shows off his unique bike design which he not only says will be common in 20 years, but is also theft-proof and features puncture-free tires. The futuristic-looking creation boasts a complete carbon fiber body with a built-in locking anti-theft mechanism which can only be activated by the touch of the bike owner’s fingerprints. Addition features include a calorie monitoring system, battery-powered assistance, and aforementioned puncture-free tires that have the ability to self-inflate.

It could be built now if there was a will. All the technologies are already there, it’s just that nobody’s put them all together before.

– Chris Boardman

Honestly, this is such a creative and practical design for bicycles, that I absolutely love it. Overall, if it can live up to Boardman’s expectations, the bike is amazing in aesthetics, design and utilitarian purposes. My only dilemma is that I can forecast a very expensive price tag. Thoughts?

The Sheetseat

August 2, 2009

Designed by Ufuk Keskin, the Sheetseat is produced from a single sheet of plywood and can be folded back to it’s flat form, utilizing only 3/4″ thickness in size. It was exhibited at IDSA’s Equilateral during the New York Design Week. “Produced by cutting a sheet of plywood, the chair can be folded flat with 3/4″ thickness. Easy production and minimal assembled volume saves labor and energy for production and transportation.”

Though I do not believe that the Sheetseat would deem extra comfortable, the design and innovation is quite exquisite. Quite impressive Ufuk Keskin.
