The Copenhagen Wheel transforms ordinary bicycles quickly into hybrid e-bikes that also function as mobile sensing units. It captures the energy dissipated while cycling and braking, saving it later for a boost.
MIT Senseable Lab engaged us to fabricate the Copenhagen wheel cover. It was a challenge which was restricted by conventional prototyping and machining methods – specifically the undercut slots cater for the wheel spokes.
We devised an unconventional fabrication thought process with a highly customized cutting tool, which solved the problem.
