The first ever mind-controlled bike has arrived! The ‘PXP’, from Toyota, Saatchi & Saatchi LA, Deeplocal, and Parlee Cycles reads your thoughts via a specially built helmet to change gears as you ride.
The bike helmet, designed by Deeplocal, incorporates a built-in EEG array that lets you shift gears just by thinking about it!
The helmet learns to read your thoughts after a ten-minute “training” session to distinguish your “shift up” thoughts from your “shift down” thoughts.
“When you see the bike shift for the first time, it’s kind of like magic,” Matthew Pegula, Deeplocal Lead Engineer, tells Co.Design.
“…we’re not too far off from this being commercially viable.”
Cadel Evans, you have to get this new toy.
