MIT’s “Copenhagen” Sensor Bike Wheel

The wheel, developed by Carlo Ratti, associate professor of the practice in MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning (DUSP) and director of the SENSEable City Laboratory, and his team at MIT SenseLab and funded in part by the city that gives it its name. Its properties:

- can go on any bike
- includes sensors for various air pollutants
- sends data via bluetooth (to an iPhone or I guess any other device)
- stores energy to a battery for use when going up hills or speeding up
- tracks location and fitness information (and can find friends)
