A noteworthy shortlisted entry at the recently concluded Incheon International Design Awards is this e-bicycle concept by Korean designers Jin Sik Kim and Bo Sung Seo, named “Re: Energy,” a bicycle that collects usable energy generated by a device in its front wheel to recharge¬†electrical devices.

According to Kim and Seo,

Nowadays, using a bicycle is in tune with finding recycled energy and preserving the environment.
‘Re:energy’ is a type of generator from a bicycle. When it is being pedaled, the rotational energy gets
collected in the front where where there is a socket to charge small electrical devices.

The IIDA was organized by Design Boom in partnership with the Incheon Metropolitan City
