The Tesla E-Max bike by Madella Simone is not just a pretty electric face. This motorcycle is covered in piezoelectric material that converts compression strength to power. And that’s not all. A second layer of Halite fabric also converts the heat of a human body sitting on the bike into extra electricity.
All this supplemental power adds to the two in-wheel motors, which should already be more than enough to give this bike some bite on the road. The design isn’t quite what Tesla would put on the road, but we love it for its own unique aesthetic. What do you think of the latest batch of concept cars, which have been plastered with high-tech surface materials?
