Copenhagen Bike Wheel

Favorited by Rama Chorpash 
Director of Product Design at Parsons 

Your bike is about to get the Internet. 

The $699 Copenhagen wheel turns any bicycle into hybrid-electric vehicle and connects it to your smartphone. Like a Toyota Prius, the device captures energy when you brake and provides a power boost when its time to zip. Sensors gather your effort level, road conditions, air pollution, temperature and humidity. Use those data to plan better routes or meet your exercise goals. 

The wheel “takes technological complexity into a seamless intuitive experience,” says Rama Chorpash, director of product design at Parsons The New School for Design in New York. Chorpash has designed for Herman Miller, Hewlett Packard, Swatch Watch and Colgate.
