Deus Ex Machina Concept Bike

There is a new Motorcycle Design Program at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. Previously well known for their ability to churn out some outstanding automobile concepts, it seems that just recently a student named Jake Loniak is making some waves and bringing a lot of positive attention to this particular program. Another shot of this awesome looking bike after the jump, as well more info on how this baby can work.

The concept is called ‘Deus Ex Machina’ and it’s not your everyday motorcycle. It’s an exoskeleton, allowing the driver to “wear” the vehicle. 36 pneumatic ‘muscles’ maneuver the bike based on the rider’s movements, so it seems that you would not be able to eat a bagel, drink your coffee, or stay updated on your boss’s emails while commuting to work…unless of course you were able to blend all of that in a mixer and hook it up to a bendy straw.
