Bay-area based electric vehicle designer called Lit is now introducing a new motorcycle-car hybrid it's calling a "rolling smartphone."
The Lit C-1 is a fully protected motorcycle that is 70 percent safer than a traditional motorcyle and nearly impossible to knock over—according to CEO Daniel Kim, it'd take a baby elephant. The C-1's secret for stability is its use of sensors and processors to monitor the vehicle's relationship with the ground. If the vehicle starts to tip, the sensors make a gyro apply an opposite force to keep the bike standing. The vehicle will constantly receive updates on traffic, weather, and other information, hence the "smartphone" conceit.
Coming to showrooms 2014.
