The “Re:energy” eco-bike designed by Korean industrial designers Jinsik Kim and Boseung Seo will capture not only green-minded people but also all fans of new technologies.Â By riding a bike we can minimize our carbon footprint, by riding the Re:energy bike one can even generate some electric power and use it to charge devices as a notebook or a mobile phone. It takes advantage of a basic physics rule that kinetic energy generated by bike wheels can be transformed into electricity. Produced energy is stored in an onboard battery to be used whenever needed.
Designer about Re:energy bike: “nowadays, using a bicycle is in tune with finding recycled energy and preserving the environment. ‘Re:energy’ is a type of generator from a bicycle. when it is being pedaled, the rotational energy gets collected in the front where where there is a socket to charge small electrical devices.”
