A group of nine mechanical engineering students at Yale have created a an impressive spokeless bicycle as a class project.

The bike was first revealed in a thread at Reddit, where one of the students explained the undertaking:

I just wanted to elaborate on why we went for the spokeless bike. First, it looks cool. Second, we only had a semester so we wanted to pick something that was both feasible and challenging. Also, you can do a lot of things with the space that opens up where the spokes use to be. You can stick an electric motor in there. You can install some sort of gyro balanced storage basket. Finally, the fact that we couldn't find pictures of a real spokeless bicycle online really sealed the deal.
