ECO-Cycle / Tokyo


Japanese engineering firm Giken Seisakusho, which specializes in tidal and flood protection systems, created the Eco Cycle Anti-Seismic Underground Bicycle Park where owners can safely park their bikes in just 8 seconds. The buried cylindrical structures are only seven meters wide, but deep enough to safely store up to 200 two-wheel vehicles each.

c5d7b3be8b9c03fb98844142187bbc64_large b5fccc789f44f6195f28903017f026bc_largeThe Monkey Light Pro creates images and animations within a bicycle wheel with the use of 4 bars of LEDs. Once you’re rolling, the display fills the bike wheel and is visible from both sides.
The Monkey Light Pro has sensors to track speed, heads-up position and rotation direction. This allows the system to create stable, full-wheel images from 15 to 65 km/h.
