Make it fly. Kind of like a Jetsons car but with two wheels.

I'd buy that for sure.

Jeezus, Buz!

Most folks have trouble handling a 2-Dimensional problem. Add a third and you'll have chaos!

Chaos, I tell you!

Not to mention having to worry about vehicles falling out of the sky and falling on you!

That's why I'm glad the 'air car' idea hasn't taken off (sorry).

Ever check how many times those Cessna's go down? Flying cars would not be pretty!

Im as much of a petrol head as the next guy but unfortunetly im looking to design an electric bike or along those lines.

I was wondering if you could give me any advice about what could be improved in a bike, whats missing? Anything you would like to see incorporated or added to a bike.

I also want to focus on safety and comfort, is there anyway to feel safer on a bike when your on the open road?

I want it to be quite different to the current bikes of today! Im aiming it towards the younger deneration and also newer users so its easy and cheap to use and maintain!

Any help or any tips of things i could look up/look into would be greatly apreciated.

Thanking you very much

Patrick Clarke

Hey Patrick nice to meet ya, good luck with your project, see ya later... Oh, is he gone already?

Everyone out there looking at "future" designs is looking at batteries. How about creating an intense electromagnetical force around the bike allowing it to take advantage of the force of gravity - gravity would then "squirt" the bike forward.

...Or else try steam. NOBODY'S creating the next generation of steam powered motorcycles yet.

I think your universe is already reversed, 'Shineboy.

Nah, google Tesla Broadcast Power Systems sometime. This is the guy who figured out how to generate and distribute useful electricity and had to fight with Edison and crew the whole way on AC vs. DC.

"Tesla stood at Pike's Peak and cackled diabolically as the night sky over Colorado was cracked by the man-made lightning machine. Colossal bolts of electricity arced hundreds of feet from the tower's top to lick the landscape. A curious blue corona soon enveloped the crackling equipment. Millions of volts charged the atmosphere for several moments, but the awesome display ended abruptly when the power suddenly failed. All of the windows throughout Colorado Springs went dark as the local power station's industrial-sized generator collapsed under the strain. But amidst such dramatic discharges, Tesla confirmed that the Earth itself could be used as an electrical conductor, and verified some of his suspicions regarding the conductivity of the ionosphere. In later tests, he recorded success in an attempt to illuminate light bulbs from afar, though the exact conditions of these experiments have been lost to obscurity. In any case, Tesla became convinced that his dream of world-wide wireless electricity was feasible."
