C-1, World’s 1st Gyroscopically-stabilized Electric Motorcycle
C-1, the world’s first gyroscopically-stabilized electric motorcycle
Introducing the C-1,
the world’s first gyroscopically-stabilized “rolling smart phone”.
This vehicle combines the efficiency and freedom of a motorcycle
with the safety and convenience of a car. Offering the “alternative
to alternatives” on an exciting and safe platform, the C-1
transforms your daily commute into something to look forward to.
The C-1, electric motorcycle looks as if it came out of the movie “Tron.”
For protection, the bike is encased in a metal shell, and it is controlled
like a car, with a steering wheel and foot pedals. Two big gyroscopes under
the floor are designed to keep it from tipping over, even when a car hits it
from the side. The C-1’s top speed is 120 miles an hour, and it can travel
200 miles on a full charge.
Influenced by Scandinavian
design,the exterior of the C-1 is both approachable and simple, enveloping
the human in subtle curves, softened volumes, and lots of glass. The overall
design foundation is based on its waist line, which wraps around the
vehicle’s circumference, and is grounded by the swooping rocker panel,
highlighting its unique gyroscopic components.
Discs of light glow from the wheel hubs, illustrating the electric hub
motors. With design key words: “subtle”, “simple”, and “human”, the C-1 is
as happy to be seen as it is to be touched.
