This is a very interesting technological breakthrough, the Copenhagen Wheel. The wheel harvests the energy you input while braking and cycling and stores it for when you need a boost whilst simultaneously collecting information about air and noise pollution, congestion and road conditions. To top it all off, the wheel can be controlled by your Smart Phone. Simply place your phone on the handlebars, and its Bluetooth module syncs with the Bluetooth module in the hub of the Copenhagen Wheel, allowing you to unlock and lock your bike, change gears, select how much the motor assists you and for viewing relevant real-time information. AMAZING! hit the jump for a video about the wheel and also more images.
