Bike Battery Doubles As A Portable Boombox
Noordung has created a motorized bike with a pair of speakers attached to the front
Noordung, an emerging Slovenian bike company, has released a battery-powered bike whose battery can detach to double as a speaker.
Noordung will only hand-make 15 of these bikes, each priced at €9,760. And so, this is why they’ll be known as the Angel Edition, as the buyers will be considered the company’s angels. Those who buy the bike will remain in contact with the company as they work out any issues or if buyers have any suggestions for the bike when it enters a full production stage in the future. Feedback is essential for Noordung from their first buyers as these bikes are still considered prototypes. They have promised to fix and provide maintenance on the bikes free of charge should any problems occur to the 15.
The battery will detach from the front of the seat to act as a portable phone, tablet or computer charger. The are two USB connectors for multiple devices. The speaker continues to work, as well, turning it into a boombox with a strong enough charge to play 100 hours of music. When the battery is detached a leather strap can hook onto both ends ensuring it doesn’t have to go in a bag or backpack while it’s transported.
