Startup development company Cyclotron is looking to the future of public transportation with their innovative bicycle design. The Cyclotron bike, which is currently in development, will take advantage of a wide variety of new and advanced technologies to create a seamless cycling experience for the user, while offering a more intuitive and safer experience for both the cyclist and those around them. The bike sports a unique lack of spokes, along with solid polymer airless tires, which will be powered by a self-charging battery pack located in the bike’s frame. The bicycle will even contain built-in LED lighting, illuminating the user’s path in dark environments as well as making the bike visible on night roads and dangerous areas. The bike features a sport mode for speed and performance, and a comfort mode for a more relaxed cruising experience, and will be able to hook up to smartphones to allow tracking of various measurements and control the bike’s various features. The Cyclotron bike is scheduled to release in summer 2017, so look forward to a fun biking experience next year!

Using Rolls-Royce’s Eleanor virtual assistant and autonomous driver, the interior of the cabin is steering free, allowing a wide space for drivers to relax on sofa-like seats. The vehicle will be emission-free, running off of an electric powertrain, and using 65 individual pieces of aluminum for wheels, rather than standard rubber tires. While the vehicle is not currently scheduled for retail release, it is a shining concept of the future of automation for Rolls-Royce and cars in general.

The International Consumer Electronics Show is a convention in Las Vegas in which inventors and companies big and small can show off planned releases and prototypes for the future of technology. Automobile company Mercedes-Benz, hoping to lead the world into a new future of driving, unveiled their newest vehicle by driving it up the Las Vegas Strip to the convention hall, only to reveal that the car was driving itself. The new Mercedes-Benz F015 Luxury in Motion, sporting a sleek silver look fitting of a futuristic car prototype, is the company’s first fully autonomous vehicle.

The F015 uses an innovative interior designed around a carriage-based concept, and features fully rotating seats that allow users to face each other directly while the car is in self-driving mode. The interior also features a number of touch-screen panels and screen throughout the vehicle, and can even project an image of what’s in front of the car to passengers through these screens, allowing users to monitor the road at all times. The F015 can be switched between autonomous mode and manual mode, and uses LED-studded bumpers on the car to let fellow drivers know which mode the vehicle is in. The vehicle is even designed to sense pedestrians, and will stop and project an image to signal to people outside of the vehicle that it is safe to cross.

On top of that, the F015 is emission-free! The car runs off of a fuel cell that creates electricity through the combination of hydrogen and oxygen, and uses innovative cylinders within the vehicle that keep the hydrogen components safe, even in the event of an accident. Clearing this hurdle was a major step in making this emission-free vehicle safe for the road. The car is currently designed to run for 550 miles off of its hydrogen fuel cells, and an added 125 miles off of its internal batteries. Unfortunately, the F015 is not slated to be available to consumers until around 2030, making the Mercedes-Benz F015 a look into the distant future of vehicular transportation.
