neuro electronic shifting, can't wait to get mine
Bicycle Of The Future Shifts Gears Via Brain Waves [VIDEO]
notice the tech clamping the carbon frame on the top tube.
Those guys are sure one step above.
The blue rag makes clamping there ok.
wow that's really neat. I still think it's a ways off. The harness is a bit bulky, but when it can be integrated into the helmet, then I think it's ready.
Judging by how much Shimano Di2 gear is, I bet this brain wave bike won't be cheap!
no biggy on the harness and helmet, they have done that
how's about something like this for us mere mortals.

and the parlee bike is more experimental and not for sale in the near future. Sorry that means on the shimano electric shifters, you still have to shift yourself.

Reason: correct spelling
While that is neat from a science stand point (and I love science), I think it is way overboard from a real life view. I love cycling as much as anyone, but come on. Its a bike. A regular shifter and cable work perfectly fine without the risk of everything going wrong like with that system.
I gotta wonder how the system would react to someone thinking "mother****er! He passed me again!" or "wow, s/he's got a nice butt". It would probably do a half shift and try to crotch the rider on the top tube.
