Bike in the Booth

Cross-posted from Textura Design, a video featuring models, scenes from the CES Blogger party, Bloghaus, and a folding bike in the Intel booth.

It took us an hour in a car the day before to get to CES and under 5 minutes on a bike. At the door, I folding the bike up, and walked right into the booth. Then later, out of the booth, unfold, and off to a ride.

Hugger about town

Bike Hugger JerseyI commute most days. I’ve become accustomed to a much smaller commuting population in the winter months, but this year there appears to be a pretty solid lift in numbers. As I wind my way out of downtown at night there’s a pretty steady stream of folks working their way along the bike-friendly routes.

Last night, as I was cruising up Eastlake I rolled up on a guy and greeted him with an “evening” as I passed him. Not a second later I got a big, “Hey BikeHugger!”. I had my green kit on and the guy (Mike) was a reader. He started commuting this summer and has been diligent about sticking to it. He lives up past UW by Sand Point and has been commuting home most every night (he takes the bus down in the morning). He’s lost 20 pounds and says he’s never felt better. Very cool - and sort of exciting to see that the Hugger is getting recognized!

Bug Labs for Bikes

Bug Labs is up for a Best of CES award for Emerging Technology with their Tinker Toy-related system.

The components could possibly make a bike-related mobile device: there’s built-in WiFi, open source software, and modules including GPS and an Accelerometer/Motion Sensor. Mount it on the bike, track your ride, and blog away.

Question is what would you make for your bike with emerging technology?

Bike Hugger @ CES Video

CES is crowds, tech from Intel, possibly evil robots, parties, a few bikes, and a “fun-ride” monorail that poses as mass transit with a lax security system. As the video shows, Mark got in through the out door.

Clean Butts

After finishing a ride, who doesn’t want a clean butt?
