Comments Off on FlyKly Smart Ped is a smart kick bike that gives you oodles of electric-assisted range

Exactly one hundred years ago one of the most interesting vehicles you could see on the city streets of NYC was the so called Auto Ped. This used to be the official transport vehicle of the NYC postmen, fashion conscious wealthy women and the NYC mobsters. Now, one hundred years later the Smart Ped has come out on Kickstarter. It’s the world’s first legal e-kick bike . It’s well designed, has great functionality and is packed with forward thinking sensors. Also it is the only kick scooter with a so called “kick assist” which means you only have to kick once to turn on the smart electric motor, which automatically adds momentum and extends your ride. Oh, and it’s ears and eco friendly too. + FlyKly Smart Ped The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ? Send us a tip by following this link.

Comments Off on West Antarctica ice will melt completely, it’s just a question of when

We all know that melting glaciers are contributing to rising sea levels worldwide, but so far, that’s been a gradual process. However, the outlook for coastal areas around the globe could get pretty grim in a relatively short amount of time. Antarctica ’s Amundsen sea’s glaciers are now unstable, and their continued warming could see the entirety of West Antarctica’s ice melting into the sea . When—not if—that happens, sea levels around the world will rise as much as 10 feet, causing widespread impacts on already fragile ecosystems, not to mention human life itself.

Comments Off on Vela is the bike of the future in the body of a classic cruiser

  Vela is the bike of the future, wrapped up in the body of a classic fixed-gear cruiser.  The beautiful, electric single-speed cruiser comes with a Li-ion 370Wh removable battery, GPS tracking, anti-theft alarm system, and a control panel with a USB port, battery life LED indicator, and charging port. With a battery  range of at least 20 miles and full charging in 90 minutes, it can take you anywhere you need to go. Users can track Vela via GPS on their Google Maps application – compatible with iOS and Android. An internal 100dB motion sensitive, remote controlled sound alarm activates if anyone tries to steal it, and the Pure Pedal Assist System allows a clean look without throttles or switches. In fact, all of the electronics – including the wires, connectors, circuits, and the battery – are inside the Chromoly Steel classic frame. Hop over to Vela to snap up one of your very own. + Vela Bike The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ? Send us a tip by following this link.

Comments Off on GenZe is a smart scooter that helps redefine urban mobility

Increasing traffic congestion—along with energy, pollution, parking and maintenance hassles—are definitely creating a demand for smart, two-wheel solutions for getting around cities, university campuses and other congested areas.  GenZe – a pioneer in energy-efficient, hassle-free transportation – has developed a brilliant solution to this issue with a new all-electric scooter platform set to reach the market in just a few months. Unlike some other electric transportation options, the GenZe will not rely on the development of a new power infrastructure. Its removable lithium-ion battery is rechargeable at any standard electrical outlet. In other words, it leverages America’s existing power grid and ubiquitous AC electrical sockets to make sure its riders keep moving, wherever they are. + GenZe The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Riding a bike to work has its limitations. The charm fades after a few days of arriving to work covered in sweat and then manhandling your bike into a spot where it will hopefully still be at the end of the day. Now imagine driving an electric vehicle to work, arriving sweat-free, and folding your vehicle up smaller than a piece of carry-on luggage to roll it into the office. Meet Trikelet, the world’s smallest electric vehicle.
