https://vimeo.com/190976177 The exclusive pre-production series limited edition Noordung bikes seek to connect music with urban cycling in a new way. The electric bike is outfitted with a boombox powered by 32 Li-Ion batteries and featuring two high fidelity speakers. The sound system connects to the rider’s smartphone, blasting any playlist the cyclist desires. Because the speakers are pointed at the rider, the sound system doesn’t contribute to external noise pollution (and, more importantly, isn’t likely to distract other riders who may have different musical interests). Related: Handmade Italian e-bike stops traffic with its weightless, elegant design The bike ’s electric motor is housed within the frame, so as not to detract from the cycle’s stellar style. With a range of 19 miles (30km) per charge, the Noordung Angel Edition bike offers hours of cycling joy, complete with the rider’s favorite soundtrack. As a bonus feature, the speaker set can be removed from the bike frame. The boombox is fitted with a carrying strap, so the dance party can continue long after you dismount the ride. + Noordung Images via Noordung

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.

Italian graphic designer helps to beautify “ugly” organic produce

Comments Off on Italian graphic designer helps to beautify “ugly” organic produce

Have you ever noticed that organic produce isn’t always as “pretty” as its conventionally grown kin? Most people avoid produce that’s misshapen because they assume there’s something wrong with it, even though  organic produce usually tastes far better than the immaculate, pesticide-covered offerings nearby. An Italian graphic designer named  Cecilia Marzocchi is hoping to change that: she has created a series of tags, labels, and tissue papers that organic growers can use to beautify their uniquely shaped  goods, thus making them far more appealing to the average consumer. These graphics can help the producers to get fair prices at local shops, while informing buyers about all the benefits present in each item. Hopefully this will increase the popularity of less attractive organic produce, and will cut down on the fresh, healthy food being thrown out and wasted each day. + Cortofrutta, by Cecilia Marzocchi Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Approximately eight million people travel between Melbourne and Sydney each year, and that number is set to double within the next 25 years. There is doubt that the country’s current infrastructure can meet this demand, so international design firm Hassell Studios set about to prove there was a better solution than 16-lane highways and endless traffic. The firm recently unveiled the  Australian High Speed Vehicle (A-HSV), a double-decker train concept that could revolutionize the way Aussies travel.

Comments Off on David Ellis Transforms Piles of Trash into Moving, Musical Sculptures!

Artist David Ellis ’ kinetic sculptures transform ordinary trash  with a life of their own. Each sculpture first appears as a typical pile of New York City rubbish, but the the refuse suddenly begins to move, creating a symphony of sounds that range from the thump of a trash can to the crinkle of a paper bag. Ellis’ sculptures not only recycle the trash that clogs city streets, but he gives the pieces a “voice” by infusing them with movement.
