Discovery News the other day and thought it was pretty cool.
A 21-year-old British college student designed this bendable bicycle. The idea is that by being able to wrap your bike around a pole like this you can lock up your frame and both wheels with one simple lock giving you a more secure setup.
Apparently the bike uses a ratchet mechanism so it's both rigid and bendable, but not simultaneously. When you jump off the bike to park it, you push a lever on the frame and the bike becomes flexible, so you can wrap it around the nearest post or bike rack.
Kevin Scott's design was runner-up in the Business Design Centre New Designer of the Year Award. He hopes to commercialize his invention.
What do you think bike fans? Is this something that you'd want?
