Flog It Blog It, Top Of The Flops Some Crappy Inventions!
The bike, created by German designers Tom Hambrock and Juri Spetter, is fixed to the rider with a belt system suspended from the machine's frame under which the rider is fixed into pace. The unique bike was entered into the annual James Dyson Award for technology, innovation and design open to international students and founded by the Dyson vacuum cleaner inventor. FLIZ comes from the German word 'flitzen' and means speeding - but with your feet. The concept is to provide healthy, ecological mobility in overcrowded urban spaces. What the heck's the point of that? My back is aching just looking at it! A fool and their money are soon parted.
We do love going over to Japan to seek out what bizarre new inventions they have created but today on fun Saturday we thought we have a look at inventions from the past from The West! I think it is fair to say we give Japan a run for the money. Sadly these never caught on nor will that bike....we wonder why?
A Wheelie good idea.....?
An amphibious bike capable of just looking silly.
