Bicyclops : animatronics bicycle control
Animatronics were used to create in a variety of fantasy movies. And it would be very interesting if this could apply to life on a daily basis. So what if the bicycle is alive!!! The project is called “Bicyclops” which inspired by the monster named "Cyclops", bicyclops eye can roll over following by handlebar position and blink following by ringing the bell. It is designed on the concept of easy access to animatronics. So it is available for all people regardless of genders or ages as it doesn’t require a high technology, you can simply customize by yourself without using any electronics device.
