Meet precious, the bike with a brain


Good morning! So today is officially my Friday since I'm off to North Carolina for the weekend, and as a result I can't promise I can have a post for you come Friday.  Hopefully one of the other contributors throw something in!  Anyways, this morning's post was inspired by the 100 mile bike ride I did for Autism Speaks a couple weeks ago.  Having said that, I would like to introduce you to Precious, the bike with a brain.  Precious is going to go on a three-month cross country excursion in support of the Livestrong Foundation.  Precious is equipped with a onboard device "coupled with a cloud-based system that allows it to analyze and express its experiences on the road (roadkills, weather conditions, dog chases).  The bike's 'thoughts' are then documented on Twitter (Creativity).  The idea itself is pretty cool, and I'm interested to see how much press it actually gets.  Anyways, thought this was pretty cool and wanted to pass it along!  Enjoy!


~Until Next Time~
