The appliances sitting atop your kitchen countertop may pull energy from the grid, but the Levitation bicycle built from the same acrylic as that kitchen countertop can put energy back into it.
We knew cycling was green, but DEzien is taking it to a whole new level. Connect on through to see how the electricity you create on the Levitation can power your home. And e-car. And iPhone and microwave and…
DEzien has equipped the Levitation with a rechargeable battery. Not for propelling the cyclist, but for capturing kinetic energy. As the Levitation is ridden a portion of the rider’s power is stored in the frame-encompassed battery. Once home and docked, the Levitation becomes a power source for most anything via its USB 3.0 cable.
The Levitation incorporates an LED touch-screen that communicates not only standard ride data, but also information on how much power the rider has generated for the battery. And seeing as this is the 21st century, why not take the tech another step further and design this future-bike as a WiFi hotspot? That is precisely what DEzien did with the Levitation. So now one can attempt the no-handed commute while scanning news headlines and social media at blazing fast speeds – all the while having confidence in the fact that said WiFi device can be recharged by that very bike upon arrival at destination.
While still a prototype, the Levitation flips the e-bike principle on its head. Anyone keen on renewable energy and less so on throttle twisting may consider this new take the marriage of electricity and pedaling.
