Plain motorcycles where too boring for Art Center Pasadena student Jake Loniak so he decided created the Yamaha Deus Ex Machina Wearable Motorcycle Concept. Inspired by Biomechatronics, the Deus Ex Machina is an electric vertically parking motorcycle controlled by 36 pneumatic muscles with 2 linear actuators. The Deus Ex Machina is worn like an exoskeleton and features seven artificial vertebra as well as the pneumatically attached helmet. The motor is in-wheel, powered by ultra-capacitors and doped nano-phoshpate batteries similar to those already used in hybrids, and is capable of 0-60mph in 3 seconds. Top speed is 75mph with a recharge time of 15 minutes and cycle time of 1 hour. Thanks for thinking way ahead of our time Jake! Very Cool!
