Issue 2:2013. The bicycle is an example of a simple technology that simply gets more and more relevant – even though it basically hasn’t changed in more than 100 years. In fact, it is so relevant that we in this issue point to it as being the means of transportation of the future. This is thought-provoking in an age when more and more objects look like relics of another time when they are just 10-15 years old. Just look at the mobile phone or the television (if we can even speak of that sort anymore, seeing as the boundaries between the computer and these devices are eroding rapidly). But the bicycle! It remains. Read Klaus Mogensen’s article on page 32. The car is another means of transportation that hasn’t changed much over the last century. However, unlike the bicycle it faces a revolution borne by technological progress, and we really can’t call it a car much longer. We may rather speak of robot-driven transportation units, and the car driver will become obsolete.
