My experience with 3D printing is quite limited, I recently printed out a camera mount which took me a week to configure only to realise I could have downloaded a drawing of the exact thing I was after. I've also tried explaining 3D printing too my dad but he never understood where the other dimension came from.

It was only a matter of time before a 3D printed motorcycle was created.   The Light Rider which sounds so 80's futuristic is the creation of a bunch of really intelligent people from a German engineering group called APWORKS.  Their bread and butter is the creation and manufacturing of products for the aviation industry using the latest in 3D printing technology.  


The Light Rider was created using the same
Algorithms as the Six Million Dollar Man

APWORKS see the Light Rider of the future of mobility, strong lightweight, and no carbon emissions.  The swiss cheese looking aircraft quality aluminium frame is exceptionally strong, and was created using bionic algorithms.  I'm fairly certain they were the same formulas that were used to create the Six Million Dollar Man back in the 70's.  Good thing they didn't throw out those worksheets.



"When bionic algorithms optimize the entire structure? "



For those that love specifications the bike will also be powered by a Silent, emission-free 6kW electric motor that can accelerate up to 130Nm of torque! Now that's impressive although I'm not sure how exactly that fits on the acceleration curve.


It's also now available for pre-orders as there will only be 50 created, but with a price tag of 50,000 Euro I think it will count out most punters looking for a cheap city run around.


Sure it's no camera mount but it's pretty impressive.

Have had a good response in having these shirts hanging in the Popup so have decided to add them to the webshop. I still find it strange and humbling that there are people out there that actually like what we've …Currently there are two designs one in black and the other in grey, although I was later told it was officially Grey Melange.
