An Android-powered, gadget-packed electric bicycle? Sure, why not...



Chinese manufacturer LeEco announced its arrival in the US on Wednesday, revealing a host of products from smartphones and TVs to VR headsets and streaming services.

However, the pick of the bunch might be its gadget-laden Super Bike, coming soon to the United States.

The 30-speed electric bike has an Android-based touchscreen device nestled between the handlebars, which features a custom ‘Bike OS’ interface.

Naturally the display, which has cellular capabilities, handles all of the GPS duties, but it’ll also make calls and play music.

There’s also a fingerprint scanner to unlock the wheels and keep the bike secure from thieves. If anyone makes off with the Super Bike it can be tracked down via built-in GPS. There’s also a built-in alarm system that’ll send an alert to a smartphone app.

On the frame there’s a number of buttons enabling users to adjust the headlights, and take photos. There are also controls under the rider’s thumbs for music volume and indicators for turning.

The headlamp and and rear-mounted laser lamps are built into the bike also.

There’s no news yet on when it will go on sale in the United States, or how much it’ll retail for. It's already available in China, starting at around £650.
