The T-Scooter concept presents a convenient conveyance to get you from A to B, but it's more than a moped with a modern look. When Chen Kaiwen was developing the two-wheeler for Tone Design, the most distinctive feature became the handset-accepting dashboard.

In the center of the handlebars, the motorized bicycle has a transparent case made especially for the placement of your iPhone. It contains and protects your device, all the while enabling you to interact effectively with its touchscreen interface. Operating in sync with a special T-Scooter app, this system keeps you informed about traffic conditions up ahead, and you can map out your route, check the weather and consult any other relevant information. There is also a rear-facing camera built into the bike, and the live video is visible on your gadget's display.
