Rethinking the motorcycle

Extracted from

Challenged to rethink motorcycle transportation, Art Center College of Design student Jake Loniak decided the idea of a machine as an extension of the body should be taken literally. Inspired by Biomechatronics and called the Deus Ex Machina, Loniak’s concept is an electric vertically parking motorcycle controlled by 36 pneumatic muscles with 2 linear actuators.

I find it rather freaky because a couple of weeks ago I had a dream about this (the concept, not the actual image). If it we're to be produce, it could possibly help solve our traffic problems (kinda).
