Ava, the eBike

“Ava, the eBike” is an augmented eBike that aims to support the experiential aspects of cycling. If sensing a leaning-forward action when aiming to speed up, the engine kicks in and accelerates the cyclist, supported by a joyful sound similar to sports cars when accelerating. Through this work, we aim to highlight the potential of interactive technology to not only support instrumental, but also experiential aspects of exertion activities. In particular, we see a unique opportunity to experience our bodies as play through actuation technologies, such as afforded by eBikes. As such, eBikes are for us readily-available exoskeletons for the masses. More information here.
