Some interesting ideas found here (http://webecoist.com/2010/02/08/cycle-crazy-16-strange-amazing-bicycle-concepts/). I kind of like the folding backpack bike as it is similar to an idea I had for my final year uni project but much much better. More info on the folding backpack bike here (http://bergmoench.koga.com/En/Default.aspx). Special thanks to Stein from the Axles of Evil for this link.

What an amazing era to be living in. The funny thing is our children, and their children,
probably wont even see this as a process of integration between technology and reality.
It's just how things will be... they will be born into this completely seamless and
integrated way of life. I feel old already.
