Innovations

Today’s post is sponsored by Dr. Batty’s For Your Health
Asthma Cigarettes.

Innovations are a funny thing, much like fads. What is
considered latest and greatest in one era isn’t even talked
about decades later. Much like Dr. Batty’s cigarettes. I’m
sure the FDA would not approve his cigarettes today as a
“cure”.

Other innovations that made life more enjoyable are now
combined into one gadget. Growing up we didn’t have a
computer but we did have transistor AM radios, calculators,
and black and white TVs. Now one doesn’t even need said
computer as the new smart phones have all the functions of
the above in one small device.

Bicycles have been around since the 1800s and have had many
stages of development. The industry has advanced through the
use of ball bearings, chain driven sprockets, tension spoke
wheels, and pneumatic tires. Enthusiasts have added gasoline
engines, electric motors, jet engines, and even sails.

By now you are probably wondering where I’m going with this,
so here it is. As I was cruising the information highway I
came across a website that extolled the virtues of a hemp
based pedal electric vehicle with three wheels and removable
doors.

It is called the PEBL, seats two, has a top speed of 20
mph, and prices start at around $6,000. The Better Bike has
a hemp and soy composite body, reverse and cruise control,
full lighting, is fully enclosed, and as mentioned can seat
two adults.

At first I thought it was a Smart Car on a diet! I found
this an interesting concept and if you’d like to see the
web page, or are interesting in learning more, go here.

Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday.
Comments are always welcome.

    As soon as I saw the PEBL I laughed and said to the cats that it looked almost like an Isetta~they didn’t comment and went back to napping. I always thought the Isetta was a cool car~check it out https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isetta

    Have a good Hump Day.

    Mamabear,
    now that you mention it I can see it. And probably about the same size. There’s an Isetta that used to go to a lot of car shows around here. After seeing it I couldn’t figure out how two people could ride in it. Thanks, we hope you have a great Hump Day yourself.
