‘deus ex machina’ by jake loniak
the art center college of design in pasadena california is well known for their car designs,
however the new motorcycle design program is becoming just as well known. one of the
projects making news is jake loniak’s standing motorcycle concept named ‘deus ex machina’.
the bike is designed as an exoskeleton, allowing the rider to ‘wear’ the motorcycle. the vehicle
manoeuvres based on the rider’s movements, adjusting 36 pneumatic muscles. while the
bike is still just a concept, its designer believes it can be built since most of the technology
it uses already exists. if someone is daring enough to ride in it is another question. you can
watch a video of the bike here.
