Light Cycles Could Become a Reality With Yuji Fujimura’S Wheel Driver

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  February 15, 2010

I don’t know about you guys, but I really loved the Light Cycles in Tron. It was the best design of a new sort of motorcycle that we still haven’t seen on our roads. Sure, there are some really neat motorcycles in fiction, like the ones in Akira, but this design actually might be made.

The Wheel Driver concept was created by Japanese designer Yuji Fujimura. The interesting thing is that the driver is seated inside the wheel, kind of like General Grievous’ vehicle in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

It would be pretty amazing to see a bunch of these single-wheeled motorcycles on the roads someday.
