Editor's Pick

Brainwaves meet bicycles on Prius x Parlee, or PXP, a concept cycle, that, among other things, brings a cyclist's brainwaves to his ride. The bike, which has been in development as part of Toyota's ongoing Prius projects out of Saatchi L.A.

The bike, designed by Parlee, has all the characteristics associated with a Prius, including eco-friendly materials and a comfortable, practical design. Saatchi also teamed up with Deeplocal to create a neuro-transmitter implemented helmet that can "read minds" and allow bikers to change gears just by thinking about it.

The bike is just a concept vehicle and won't be up for sale. It was featured on ProllyIsNotProbably.com, a bike-enthusiast blog as part of Toyota marketing's plan.
