The Toyota Prius x Parlee Project: The Mind Reading Bike

Don't let the minimal aesthetics of the Toyota Prius and Parlee concept bicycle fool you, it is actually a lot more advanced than one would assume. The bike is an upgrade from your traditional two-wheeler - showcasing a lightweight carbon fiber frame with a built-in smartphone dock and mind-powered shifter.
Here's how the mind-powered shifter works: the cycling helmet is rigged with neurotransmitters which interpret brainwaves and sends the data to an iPod application that controls the bike gears. Get a closer look at this project after the jump!
