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!

Artist and sculptor team FAILE has just introduced his art to the bustling crowds of New York City with their newest installation piece, “Wishing on You”! FAILE, which is a team comprised of artist duo Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller, opened their installation up at Times Square in New York City earlier this week, which re-imagines Asian-stlyed prayer wheels to match the giant city’s diverse history and cultures. The piece is made to be an interactive work, in which visitors are encouraged to spin the hand-carved wheel in order to power up the sculpture, illuminating LEDs and other gimmicks throughout the statue. The piece was created in partnership with Times Square Arts, and will remain on display until September 1st. The unveiling of “Wishing on You” also coincides with FAILE’s art exhibition at the Brooklyn Art Museum, titled “FAILE: Savage/Sacred Young Minds”, which will be open to visitors until October 4th.
