Mirrorcycle Blends Into Surroundings (Poorly)

Moto Undone (just like the top few buttons of my blouse!) is a conceptual electric motorcycle designed by Joey Ruiter. When seen from a blurry ant's-eye-view, the bike almost seems to disappear. When seen clearly at normal height, it looks like a dude humping a mirror because he's convinced he's the fairest one of all.

Moto is an electric motorcycle inside a block of polished metal. Its 1000w 48v electric hub motor will run for three hours, or around 90 miles, and runs silently. This stealthy motor combines with the chameleon-like skin to make a bike that you won't see -- or hear -- coming.


Sure, it may not be safe, but from a distance it looks like the rider is just flying above the asphalt.

Safety shmafety -- if I was wanted to compromise looking cool for safety I wouldn't have cut the entire top off my car and replaced the front seats with a couch. "Let me guess -- the back seat is a futon." Futon, please -- rocking chairs, bro. I have a lot of elderly friends.

Hit the jump for some less-invisible shots.

Thanks to Chris G., who actually rides a rocket-powered broomstick. Now THAT -- that's how you score some Harry Potter fangirls.
