JouleS THE ROBOT – Robotic tandem bicycle partner!

Bikes Fun & Games Robotics

JouleS THE ROBOT via .

Joules exists because designing and making things is fun.

Joules came from a challenge to build an electric tandem bicycle powered by actually pushing the pedals like a person. Fun kinetic design was part of the intent, practicality was not.

Riding with Joules is a reminder that engineering and craftsmanship can be joyful pursuits. Engineering and art need not be separate.

I hope that Joules can remind kids that creating real things is great way to spend time, and perhaps a career.
