The way we ride bikes now is to just sit there, peddling, hunched forward. When you think about it, it’s kind of unnatural. If this Bird of Prey bike takes off, people will be riding bikes in a whole new way though.
This bicycle has its riders leaning all the way forward, legs stretched out, flying more than riding.
It’s hard to imagine that there was a time when drones took shaky videos. The good ones are so stable now. The biggest problem right now is the size, but that is getting better too. DJI’s Mavic Pro is a good example.
