Rainbow Bicycle


Tim from Urbanophil sent us this little film. Once again, Copenhagenize's finger is firmly on the pulse. Only 314,000 people seen it already.

Normally I criticize (mock) overcomplication of the simple bicycle, but this is in a league of it's own. On the vimeo page it says:

instrument of mass destruction.
(complicated technical solution to aide in simple acts of vandalism)


So there is at least an admission of overcomplication. But with that said, I love this little film. You can just feel the passion and energy that went into creating this loveable little monster of a machine. The bicycle as a protest tool. Same as it ever was.

As a geeky tinkerer I gotta give this guy props, as well as point out that he didn't complicate the bicycle, he just used it to tow his robot.

Is it a Rube Goldberg or a Heath Robinson contraption?
