What is Elmoto!

Two German engineers have managed to develop (without any external technological help or financial support) an electric bike that looks like a mix between a motorcycle and a mountain bike. The so-called Elmoto is powered by a 2KW engine and boasts a driving range of up to 65km with a single battery charge (which costs around $1)

Weighing just 45kg (the frame is made of aluminum), drivers can go as fast as 45km/h. The lithium-ion battery-powered Elmoto is being marketed as a “green” vehicle since it doesn’t emit carbon dioxide. German customers don’t even need to have a driver’s license to use it, but this may be different in other EU countries (the owners currently try hard to internationalize their invention, at least in the EU).

The developers of the e-bike hope to ship 100 units by the end of this year and then significantly boost sales in 2010. The Elmoto costs $5,700.

What is “Tent Sofa” by Philippe Malouin!

One, must have, amenity for every recording studio is a comfortable and sleepable sofa.  I’ve slept in more studios than the law will allow.  I remember once while we were making Late Registration i got tired and announced that I was going into the booth where this really comfortable love seat was to sleep, but apparently nobody was paying attention.  I woke up in the middle of the night in a pitch black Chalis Studio’s. Recently i’ve been thinking of converting an extra bedroom in my house to a workspace/ vocal studio.  The plan consisted of taking out all the bedroom furniture and bringing down all of my equipment from an upstairs finished out attic space.  The final touch is to be the addition of a sleeper sofa or something of the futon type.  I think I just got an idea….
