Geek’s Got a Green Gadget

Writing after a long time. Have a good reason, too. I got my first green gadget, yes an electric bike. 100% electric. 0% emission. Ultra silent. Lightweight. And it feels cool.

The model looks like somewhere between bicycle and a scooter. Not as powerful as motorbikes but great for city roads where you can’t drive with higher speeds anyway. Its so silent that its sometimes risky. It requires no maintenance at all. Just charge the battery when required. It has also got room for an extra battery for backup. The ride is also smooth and not jerky like petrol bikes. Surprisingly, it has remote control lock and alarm system.

It has taken quite a long time for efficient and powerful batteries to come to market. Partly because of the vested interests of oil companies, governments and some other evil elements. But finally, the time has come where all vehicles will run on electricity.

I am watching this space closely as I also plan to buy my first electric car. It will be at least 2012 when affordable and powerful electric cars will come to market.

Tesla is coming big way in USA, Reva is to bring new models. Nissan’s Leaf will be fantastic. Its going to be crazy.

Its funny that I was never interested in cars or motorbikes. But the technological developments in this domain make me interested to watch how this space is going to evolve. Just like last 3-4 years were highly exciting in Mobile space, the next exciting space is going to be electric vehicles. There is gonna be a lot of food for my geek mind.
