Got a Tandem Bike But Nobody To Ride it With? Meet Joules, the Robot Cyclist

07/19/2010 3:22 PM |

Joules, the tandem-riding electric robot, won’t judge you as your legs become weaker with age and he increasingly has to do all the pedaling; he won’t snitch on you if you ride the wrong way down one-way streets or glide through red lights. He will glare at you coyly for not wearing a helmet because, you see, he has one built into his body. If the robot’s anonymous inventor wants to make an urban Joules model (“Joolz”?), he’ll want to outfit it with some Robocop-inspired features to survive all those bicycle gunfights.
