Real Clever Science

My name is Ari Einbinder. This is the journal of my travels into the realm of science and science education.
I've worked at science museums in NY (NYSCI and AMNH) and across Europe. Currently I'm studying "museology" (aka museum studies) at UW in Seattle, WA. I'm also one of Tumblr's Science Section editors.

I discuss anything that fascinates me, but popular topics include evolution, transhumanism (e.g BCI), futurism, psychology, quantum computing, climate change, sustainability, genetic engineering and occasionally politics - to name a few.

Enjoy!

A bicycle made almost entirely of cardboard has the potential to change transportation habits from the world’s most congested cities to the poorest reaches of Africa, its Israeli inventor says.
Izhar Gafni’s lightweight, cheap bicycle, made almost entirely of cardboard, can be given to poor for free and recycled if broken. Read more.

This is an amazing article and invention. In case you’re wondering, they expect you’ll be able to buy these for around $20 - but due to various government incentives, and advertising on the bike, they’re hoping to be able to provide them for free in many poor areas! Really amazing stuff!
Oh, and seems to be quite green! (Though I wouldn’t mind some more info about that.)
Check out the link, and also the video on that page!
P.s. It’s waterproof.
