Robot Actually Pedals on Tandem Bike Behind Its Maker

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.usJoules might be a robot, but that doesn’t mean he can’t enjoy a calming tandem bike ride with his creator, Carl. He’s not dead weight, either—he actually pedals, thanks to a PMG-132 motor.

That sounds like something from a sci-fi movie, and the problem with this is that according to Carl Joules “does all of the pedaling,” which sounds like if it’s ever mass produced for market sales a lot of people won’t be losing weight from biking anymore….

If you’re wondering, it requires training wheels because it can’t balance itself on its own, as you know the faster you go on a bike the easier it is to balance your weight.
