Tree bike

In those days the Milanese can see the new “bikeMi” going round the city. bikemi1

This bicycles belong to a Municipal project started on 3th December 08 based on sharing bike. It is a new public transport of the city.

This fact made me thought about how designer can, with a study on design, carry out a secure system for bike’s parking, because bike theft is problem in cities. Surfing on the net after the vertical garden  I found the tree bicycle racks, but here we don’t have leaves but only bikes. Bike Tree’s concept helps to alleviate this problem by raising bikes up and out of reach of bike thieves. tree_bikeThe project incorporates a locking mechanism that would use your fingerprint as a key.121139_uow20hn5slzx8out78unc3yoeI think that it could be a good idea but I can’t imagine a technological and also expensive (I suppose) installation like it in Milan. Maybe we can see it in cities like Dubai.
