The Copenhagen Wheel: AN URBAN REVOLUTION?

I feel it is cool product, may not be suitable for Indian market, but it might have a big impact on transportation system, what do you think? let us discuss in the comments below!

What is Copenhagen Wheel?

A self-­contained unit that snaps easily onto the back of any ordinary bicycle and turns it into an electric hybrid. With extra power at the riders’ feet, regenerative braking, and advanced control systems, the wheel promotes cycling so that long distances or steep up-hills are no longer a barrier to a comfortable ride.

The Copenhagen Wheel is the original “smart wheel” first conceived the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s SENSEable City Lab. The inventors then joined forces as Superpedestrian, exclusively licensing the technology from MIT and working to perfect a user experience that enables cyclists to ride practically anywhere with simplicity and ease.
