Retrofitted Bi-cycle

How about a retrofitted cycle that goes faster on cratered roads? Its being made possible by innovator Kanak Das of Morigaon, a village in Assam. The retrofitted cycle caught the attention of an IIM professor, who helped patent the device & now MIT is trying to apply Das's innovation to automobiles.

The cycle has been designed in a manner so that it can generate energy from shock absorbers. Das fitted a front shock absorber that compresses and releases energy whenever his cycle hit a bump.

Kudos to Kanak Das for his amazing innovation!!!
