“Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is,” mentions Master Yoda. The same can be said for teenage brains, as a couple of teens from Ontario have built an electric vehicle that resembles a motorcycle, save for the exclusion of hand steering controls. In order to get around, the rider leans towards the direction of the desired motion in a similar manner to the Segway. This ride is also environmentally friendly, producing zero emissions that makes it suitable for city use. Known as the Tango, it uses a R6 Yamaha sports bike frame and has a top speed of 40 mph, giving the rider the same experience as riding on a motorcycle. Accelerometers are used to measure acceleration as well as detect the rider’s location and wheel control. Would you pick this up if it was commercialized?
