Cyglo Bike Tires with Embedded LED’s Powered as the Wheels Turn


Cyglo bike tires

Cyglo bike tires are the pimped-out equivalent of spinners for bikes. They have LEDs embedded into the rubber which will glow in a perfect circle of light as the wheels turn, making you safe but also making you look awesome/stupid as you ride.

Curious Rollings
Airtrax’s omnidirectional wheels for industrial vehicles can roll forward, back, sideways, diagonally… Like something out of a Neal Stephenson novel. I want an electric car with these things (though who know how they wear on road conditions?).

Jumping over hurdles and rolling through better surfaces is daunting. Similarly, maneuvering over on the lunar and extraterrestrial surfaces is equally challenging for the bots and machines alike. Making robots with ability to move about efficiently in all terrains is expensive and cumbersome, therefore Jollbot is a great introduction here. Created by Rhodri Armour, a PhD student from the University of Bath, the Jollbot is a robot that can jump like a grasshopper and roll like a ball. (w/Video)
