The screwdriver-powered bike is too impossible, but true
Nils Ferber, a German designer, created the ‘EX’ motorcycle that is powered by a duo of 18-volt screwdrivers. The position of the driver leaves on a little skeptical but then you cannot get the best comfort levels delivered to you with such an insanely minimal design. The three-wheeled vehicle, that reminds me of an auto rickshaw, requires the driver to lay headlong. It is accelerated with the use of the driver’s hands that are all over the place. There’s a special joint that is instrumental in tilting the back wheel, so as to lean the driver’s weight into the curve, dynamically.
These are one of those bikes that have an adverse effect on sudden brakers. So beware of the obstacles that constantly haunt your joyride.
