Samsung Galaxy S II Monitors New Ford Electric E-Bike Concept


First it was the Nike Mags and now this — the Ford E-Bike Concept. I think it’s safe to say, the future has finally arrived. This Android powered hybrid electric bike packs an electric motor built into the front wheel delivering up to 25 km/h maximum speeds on a 9.2Ah battery. If you’re still living in last century, you can also pedal the old fashioned way but really, why bother? The device you see in between the handle bars is a Samsung Galaxy S II installed with some specialized apps, effectively allowing you to change the bike’s suspension, keep an eye on your battery charge and use our favorite Google apps like Navigation (Gmail is not recommended). So when will this Android powered cycle go into mass production? Well, probably never. But it’s awfully purty, isn’t it? Now where’s my damn hoverboard?

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. that is utterly stupid. not the bike, that’s pretty awesome, the whole idea of creating such an awesome thing and then never taking it to production.

  2. Wow ..this is a great concept..Hope the big manufacturers are listening before apple does. What this idea could mean is.. 1) You will have bicycle market going up all over the world. 2) The electric bike means no pollution which is again great 3) This concept can open doors with not just bicycles but also Bikes and Cars..this has been long due. This is a great concept provided they take it further and develop. I sincerely hope they change their mind and go into mass production. This is great.

  3. The concept should become reality but in the tech world so much get thrown to the side. If pedaling this bike recharge the battery this could work for a lot of people who live 20 minutes from work or school. Make it affordable and I will have 2 please!!

  4. Wow looks leaps and bounds better than the electric bike VW showed off last year.

  5. Idk about the bike. But I’ll take the phone and the Nike mags.

  6. I want one. I would ride my bike more.

  7. Yeah we definitely need a hoverboard

  8. Ford? so it guarantees a visit to the mechanic shop 6 months after purchase?

    1. Someone hasn’t been paying attention to the automotive market over the past decade.
