Ready for another weird motorcycle? Ritsert Mans, a Dutch designer and his friend Peter Mooji, a scientist, have teamed together to develop a strikingly unusual motorcycle. Mooji, the scientist, grows algae and is an advocate for algae as an energy source. He has even authored a book about algae.
Inspired by Mooji, Mans decided to build a motorcycle powered by algae oil. Oh- and did I mention the motorcycle is largely constructed out of wood? After some time in development, the inspiration came to fruition.
Although this bike won’t be put into production anytime soon, it certainly has raised eyebrows. Will algae-powered bikes and cars by the wave of the future? Just what WILL bikes look like in 30 years? Checkout the video below to see this weird motorcycle in action and give us your comments! We’d love to hear what you think!
