Weekend Fun: Digital Signage on Bikes? What the?

Posted: June 5, 2011 at 12:09 pm   /   by   /   comments (1)

I just stumbled across an image of a bike with digital screens. Is this real or is it fake?

Here’s the picture:

Owly Images

If it is real, here’s a list of my concerns:

  • theft – now it gives thieves more of a reason to steal your bike… they now will get a free screen
  • what happens if it rain? is it a waterproof screen?
  • what happens if there’s a strong wind? will the bike fall?
  • will pedalling generate more electricity for the battery to run the screens?
  • safety – if the screens draw too much attention to drivers will it cause accidents?

I must give it to the company or engineers that came up with this idea… but to be honest this digital signage implementation is not my cup of tea.

    Hi,
    it’s real 🙂 and this picture was taken at Taipei Computex Show few days before you posted it.

    from my point of view:
    * theft – here in Taiwan, unlikely somebody will push the guy to steal this bike..
    * what happens if it rain? is it a waterproof screen? : not sure…
    * what happens if there’s a strong wind? will the bike fall? : I guess…
    * will pedalling generate more electricity for the battery to run the screens? : not far as I remember
    * safety – if the screens draw too much attention to drivers will it cause accidents? : do we prevent hot chicks to go out because they can cause accident? 🙂
