Self-Stabilizing Electric Bicycle

Just when I was commenting that we need a new safety bike for commuters, I find an article from Physorg on a self-stabilizing bike. Sure, that’s worth a chuckle, but also an interesting application of safety engineering that’s usually reserved for motorized vehicles and encouraging that engineers are studying ways to modernize bicycle design.

For every fixie rider that can demonstrate how bad-ass they are by descending Yesler in Seattle with no brakes, I’d argue there are 10 moms that’d like to ride to work, but are worried about many things, including falling.
