The Tesla E-max Runs on Human Body Heat

The Tesla E-max is a futuristic motorcycle concept designed to use its rider as its source of power. The bike is covered in piezoelectric material that converts the compression strength of a seated rider into energy. In addition to the piezoelectric panels, the bike also has a layer of Halite fiber that converts human heat into energy.

The Tesla E-max was designed by Madella Simone. The bike has a futuristic look with its spokeless wheels and innovative body design, which attaches the wheels to the bike's base using cables. The Tesla E-max is easily too futuristic for today's technology. Still, I wouldn't be surprised to see motorcycle companies implement some of the technology mentioned here into new designs. A bike that runs on kinetic energy would theoretically never have to be refueled. I think everyone likes the sound of that. Stats for Human-Powered Motorcycles Trending: Older & Buzzing
