Solar-powered GPS Wireless Camera Bike from Yahoo!

Solar-powered GPS Wireless Camera Bike from Yahoo!

Yahoo sent me this super bike to ride around for a few weeks.

Every 60 seconds (while moving), it snaps a photo, geo-tags it, and uploads it to Flickr here:

Solar panels power batteries in the box in the back, and an N95 does the picture-taking, geo-tagging, and uploading up front. Everything’s sealed up for weather.

There are 20-odd of these bikes around. It was made by Yahoo in Brooklyn and San Diego, and came in a truck.

    Hot stuff! Yesterday I saw scribbled on the sidewalk in my neighborhood, "Bake Sale for Obama." It MUST be for your bike, yes? Future pimped-out-ness?

    That looks like a cool toy! It’s almost an affordable version of Google’s car…

    Holy cow! This is SO COOL. A little more expensive than my contraption, but probably even cooler. Jealous!

    shiet cool.

    So where do you plan on parking this bike? 😉 Granted, I’ll have to thwart its built-in surveillance camera.

  13. @superamit says:

    @bhaggs — plus i’ll be able to track its thief on a map since it’s geo-tagging as it goes..

    cook gadget and a novel idea. happy trails, but being unedited and unsorted, the photostream is not very captivating
