The transportation idea is designed around bringing people together to talk as they commute

The autonomous vehicle of the future has often been imagined to look like a car but this particular concept thinks the motorcycle is a better predecessor. The Cyclotron, a concept autonomous vehicle by Charles Bombardier and Ashish Thulkar, comfortably sits two riders and balances itself on two wheels.

Like the best ideas, the Cyclotron is inspired by both science fiction and reality. The streamlined design and shape come from the Tron Light Cycle. The ability to self-balance and ride like a car on two wheels is a vision shared with San Francisco’s Lit Motors who built a prototype of a self-balancing motorcycle called the C-1.
