Very Cool, Smart, and Simply Awesome Bicycle Wheels from Flykly (CES 2015)
We went to the Sands Expo where is actually where a lot of truly ground breaking ideas that are being shown and selling and sold. This is where a ton of start ups and kick starters that come face to face with potential investors, media press, as well as distribution channels for their inventions to become reality, and hopefully generated a few more billionaires along the way.
One of the very cool company has a product called Flykly. We are not sure how the origin of the name comes from, but their concept is genius Basically they have this great concept of augmenting bicycle wheels with an electrical motor and rechargeable battery. It goes without saying that the motorized wheel turns any bicycle into an electrical bicycle. However, the best part and most genius part is that the battery can be recharged by braking as well as by paddling backwards when on downhills. Now this one of the cleanest, innovative, and best use of wasted energy ways in transportation applications.
We fell in love immediately at the spot.
