THOSE CRAZY MIT KIDS ARE AT IT AGAIN!

The students of MIT have released their latest research project in Copenhagen at the Climate Change Conference. They have developed a bicycle wheel that stores kinetic energy when braking and then releases the energy back to the rider when needed, say for example, on a long climb. Additionally, the wheel can even recognize your friends when they are around and track multiple data variables through an iPhone. I did not see mention of the RIM Blackberry platform or whether it would be included.  For more information, CLICK HERE!

Maybe you can start dropping hints for a Christmas present for 2010!

Until later,
