we have seen our fair share of concept bike but the INgSOC by designers Edward Kim and Benny Cemoli looks like a bike that’s left behind after an alien invasion. no seriously, that’s the first thing that came to my mind. along with its alien-like look, is a carbon fiber reinforced polymer structure and an advanced hybrid power technology. a battery pack exist to power the hybrid’s motors, front and rear lights, and a charging dock for mobile devices like smartphone and GPS. the rider’s pedal power is also translated into power to contribute to the battery juice. so what’s with the odd, alien-looking design? apparently, it is the combination of “the aerodynamic shapes of triathlon designs, flexible handing of traditional bikes” that result in this breathtaking conceptual design. seriously, i don’t really care how it transmit is forces cos’ all i care is it look pretty damn good! more pics after the break.

reducing your carbon footprint is easy – you can start by riding a bicycle for your daily grocery shopping routine but there is just one problem: you can’t carry very much on a two wheeler, hence Instructables member Ryan McFarland aka Zieak came up with a brilliant idea by mashing a disused shopping cart with a bicycle. the result is what Zieak dubbed as Cart Bike. with this bicycle-shopping cart hybrid, you can not only acquire a whole cart worth of groceries enough to feed a platoon but you will be going to turn heads too, though it will not be such a good corner turner according to Zieak. hey, you are not in for a grocery bike Grand Prix so why worry? besides, with the shopping cart’s four wheels, it’s definitely going to be way more stable then your traditional two wheeler. pretty neat, huh? want one? well, you can’t grab one off the shelf but you can get your hands dirty by following Zieak’s instructions as laid out on Instructables.
