Pretty cool. Have not heard about this project. I really like how it integrates with your bike and phone. It doesn't seem like a lot of extra stuff to keep track of.

Indeed David - thanks for your comment - I agree, this is such a brilliant design that I think it will be in high demand when it gets produced. I emailed the team lead at MIT on this but he is out of the office on vacation right now.

hey cool follow up - one of the team members fro MIT emailed me...looks like the wheel will go into production soon.

"Hi Kevin,

Thanks for your interest in the Copenhagen Wheel!

We are currently in final prototyping phase and will go commercial in approximately 12 months - the cost will be approximately $500 US per wheel.

I will certainly add you to our mailing list of people who are interested in the wheel and will keep in contact as we progress.

In the meantime, if you have a facebook account, make sure to become a fan of the "Copenhagen Wheel" by copying and pasting the link below into your web browser.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
