We’ve seen young people produce sustainable air-conditioning and electricity-generating trainers.

Now, having taught himself the basics of programming and electrical engineering, an ambitious 19-year-old from India has hand-converted a normal bicycle into a theft-proof electric bike.

Starting the E-bike is only possible via a fingerprint sensor. It has a range of 60km, while the in-built battery can be fully charged within 4 hours.

An app uses GPS to show the bike’s precise location, sending notifications to the owner in the event of suspicious activity.

Investors are currently being sought to help manufacture the product on a large scale. The prototype, which the inventor still uses himself, cost around €300 to make.
