Did You Figure Out What It Is?
It's a bicycle. Yes, a very high-tech bicycle. It's called the ARION1, and it was developed by students at Liverpool University in England who are hoping to break the pedal-powered speed record. If you're asking, "How is the rider supposed to see where they're going?", that's a great question. See the hole if the front of the bike? That's for a camera! The rider will use the camera and a computer to navigate. Read more about it here. Ok, it's cool, but who needs all that high-tech stuff? When I was a kid we would have used a big cardboard box with a hole cut in it to accomplish the same thing. Except we would have run into parked cars and mailboxes!
