The Copenhagen Wheel.
Innovators have actually reinvented the wheel. The Copenhagen wheel turns your bike into a hybrid electric bike. The wheel is synced with an application that you can download to your smartphone. The wheel learns about your pedalling cadence and stores energy, which can be used to make you pedal faster and climb hills easier. The design has been welcomed by cyclists since it eases the exertion required for people that cycle to work, leaving them dry and making cycling more enjoyable by taking away the difficulty with navigating long distances and steep hills. The technology was developed by students from MIT along with the city of Copenhagen, which boasts one of the largest cycling communities in the world.
