Fed up with a tiresome train commute in his local Sydney, designer Richard Heath designed this modern city commuter, the BlueSkyBike. The electric assisted, folding design features a rear hub motor, angled folding mechanism for easy transportation and storage, a regenerative braking system for supplemented energy, and even smartphone linking capability that makes it possible to monitor energy systems and the bike’s security. Besides all that nifty tech, it’s just plain cute! Hit the jump for the video!
