This electric-assist add-on makes any bike it is attached to pedal faster.

Commuting to work is increasingly common and many people are interested in cheaper options than using cars and faster alternatives to riding bikes. While electric bikes are an effective option, most of the ones on the market are quite costly. The electric-assist add-on designed by Semcon is a smart engine that can be attached to the user's bike to make pedaling easier and faster. The engine detects pedaling and to ensure safety, it only uses the assist option when it senses that the bike is going between seven and 25 kilometers an hour.

Once it is available, this affordable electric engine add-on could completely change people's work commutes.
