The project involved specialists of the laboratory NOWlab. Padded seat, wheels, frame and the rest of the body Nera — all of this is done with the help of 3D printing. Engineers chose the design of airless tires, like the Michelin concept, but instead of the usual suspension used flexible material damping while riding. From ready took only electrical part: motor, battery and headlights.

Length of the bike is 1.9 meters with a weight of about 60 pounds. Mass production is out of the question. It is rather a demonstration of the capabilities of modern 3D printers. And a good advertisement for products BigRep.
