Bikes have been around for more than a century. They have stayed strong throughout the years, surviving the fast development of cars and remaining even today a viable and sometimes preferred method of transport for urban areas. However, the fact remains, that one of their main problems is that they can be stolen easily. nCycle is a revolutionary e-Bike that solves this problem with the help of technology.
nCycle manages to impress with its array of innovative and high-tech features. It comes with a smartphone dock and integrated holographic display. It is a folding bike and can be packed quickly due to its easy folding mechanism. However, what really stands out is the novel security mechanism dubbed “nLock.”
nLock uses nCycle’s handlebars to secure the bike. The bars can be used to lock the vehicle on a streetlight or something similar. Of course, no method is perfect, but this one is simple and elegant. All you need is your bike and no other resources. As for its other features, nCycle comes with a battery-powered electric motor, Bluetooth speakers and integrated headlights. It also has a holographic display that is mounted on the handlebars and which mirrors the screen of the user’s smartphone. The screen can provide directions or other information, while the smartphone is safely tucked in our pocket.
The folding process of the nCycle is quick and easy, using a three step method. The e-bike was created by designers Marin Myftiu and Skyrill. If it goes past its concept stage, the bike could come in more than one version. Each version would be tailored to suit budgets and needs. The most expensive model would probably come with a a comparatively expensive electric motor.
The nCycle is definitely and interesting vehicle that would definitely attract a lot of attention if it would reach production stage. Would you like to see it hit the market?
