Yamaha-branded wearable motorcycle concept

Art Center College of Design shows Yamaha-branded wearable motorcycle concept - Hell For Leather: "Challenged to rethink motorcycle transportation, Art Center College of Design student Jake Loniak decided the idea of a machine as an extension of the body should be taken literally. Inspired by Biomechatronics and called the Deus Ex Machina (not to be confused with that other Deus Ex Machina from Australia), Loniak's concept is an electric, vertically parking motorcycle controlled by 36 pneumatic muscles with 2 linear actuators."
