Have you seen the Copenhagen Wheel? It helps you ride your bike.

By Christopher Cudworth

There are a lot of smart people in the world. Fortunately some actually care about the planet, and put their minds to good uses. One of them was Buckminster Fuller, who once said, “You do not belong to you. You belong to the Universe.”

Copenhagen WheelWell, I’ve just seen a Universal concept that will make you smile. It’s called the Copenhagen Wheel. It was invented in collaboration between MIT and the City of Copenhagen. The Copehhagen Wheel knows how to store energy when you pedal or brake and give it back to you when you need it.

That rocks. Absolutely.

You can now commute without killing yourself riding up hills, or breaking into an ugly flop sweat.

Here’s the video. You tell me if you’re not impressed.


Now if they can invent something like this that helps you run, there will be millions who buy it as well. Well, we might already have it. They’re called dogs.

And for swimming? Those are called sharks?

We run and ride and swim for our lives sometimes. If reality TV has its way someday, there will be a Swim-Ride-and-Run for your life Triathlon.

But things like the Copenhagen Wheel might actually make it easier to compete.
