    replica watches Francois Gissy on his rocket-powered bicycle

    Image Gallery (2 images)

    fake watches On May 19 of this year, Francois Gissy claimed a new land speed world record by reaching 263 km/h (163 mph) on a rocket-powered bicycle. Now the flying Frenchman has gone even faster, hitting a peak speed of 285 km/h (177 mph) in just 6.7 seconds, making it the fastest anyone has ever ridden a bicycle.

    high quality replica watches The 285 km/h run took place at Interlaken, Switzerland, on October 7 on just 790 m (2,590 ft) worth of usable track. The acceleration phase of the Hublot-sponsored run took 350 m (1,148 ft), with the remainder of the track required for braking.

    swiss Mechanical movement replica watches Gissy was straddling a canister of concentrated liquid hydrogen peroxide that provided the fuel for the rocket on the record attempt, which also saw him do the quarter mile (402 m) in 7.3 seconds. His rocket-powered ride outdoes the 268.8 km/h (167 mph) achieved by Fred Rompelberg slipstreaming behind a dragster in 1995, which if certified, will make it the fastest anyone has ever traveled on a bicycle.

    The video below shows the run wasn't always smooth riding, with the vibrations from the rough track causing the rear axle to loosen significantly.

In high school he upgraded to a 286 PC, and he's been following Moore's law ever since. This love of technology continued through a number of university courses and crappy jobs until 2008, when his interests found a home at Gizmag.   All articles by Darren Quick Tags »  Bikes »  Rocket »  Speed »  World's Fastest 9 Comments

    It's not a bicycle if it's got a rocket engine! It's a rocket propelled motorcycle, surely. Was he pedalling at 177mph? If this record stands it's a triumph for stupidity not derring-do!

    If he was catapulted on a bicycle that would be OK, but you cannot have a motorised, rocket-propelled or anything propelled machine and call it a bicycle, even if it has bike gears and brakes.

    Nothing like straddling a bottle of organic acid be twine Ur legs. Cool record and good nothing went wrong as the pilot would have suffered some horrific acid burns. Most likely died having the lower part of the body eaten away.

    So brave pilot :D

    Sorry "Master" but "bicycle" simply means "two wheels" NOT "pedal-powered"

    Nutcase,

    I think Master-guy is right. There is a reason he mounted pedals and a chain on the vehicle even if he does not use them. I think his machine is qualified as "bicycle with motorised support". The word you are looking for is "two wheeler" as bicycle actively revers to it being propelled by human power.

    He isn't the fastest person on a bicycle - I saw on Discovery an american being pulled by a car on that salt trail in the desert - he reached 300 km/h, but was not "self"-propelled, if you can say that about a rocketcycle

    By Tom Simonite on June 25, 2014 Why It Matters

    high quality swiss replica watches If wearable devices catch on, that will mean a lucrative boom in associated apps and services.

    Wrist action: LG’s G smart watch uses Google’s Android Wear software.

    swiss Mechanical movement replica watches Google will begin selling two smart watches through its online store today, the first products to be made available in the company’s push to see its Android software power a new generation of devices that are worn on the body.

    replica watches LG’s G Watch and Samsung’s Gear Live both have touch screens and connect with a smartphone. They run a version of Google’s Android mobile operating system dubbed Android Wear, and their functionality depends heavily on the company’s services and voice recognition software.

    high quality replica watches “We’re right at the beginning of a new phase in the miniaturization of technology,” said David Singleton, a director of engineering in Google’s Android division, speaking at the company’s I/O event in San Francisco today. “It’s finally possible to make a small computer that can fit comfortably on your body all day long.”

    top brand watches Singleton showed off several smart watches on stage and walked through scenarios enabled by the Google Now service already available on Android smartphones (see “Google’s Answer to Siri Thinks Ahead”). Google Now automatically displays “cards” with information it judges a person may need at a particular moment, such as notification of a flight delay or sports score.

    Singleton said that Google Now ought to help reduce the burden that a smartphone can put on a person’s attention. Google’s research has found that people who use Android smartphones check them an average of 125 times every day, he said.

    In other demos, smart watches powered by Google’s software displayed a flight boarding pass and counted the steps a user takes each day. The devices can notify the wearer of incoming phone calls, which a tap or two on the screen can dismiss or answer with short canned text messages such as “I’m busy.”

    Google’s software is constantly listening for the phrase “OK, Google,” which signals the start of a voice command. Examples include “Remind me to check the mailbox when I get home” and “Play some music.”

    The smart watches that go on sale today can show notifications from smartphone apps on a person’s wrist. But more functionality will emerge when app developers start designing software specifically for the devices, said Singleton. 

    A few companies have already begun experimenting. For instance, Pinterest’s smart-watch app can push notifications to a paired Android watch when the wearer approaches a place that a contact has bookmarked. Meanwhile, the Eat24 food delivery app will suggest an order at times of the day or week when the wearer has previously placed an order. In a demo, Singleton ordered a pizza delivery from his wrist with just a few taps.

    Google’s software is also designed to support devices with circular screens. The first watch with a circular face is the Motorola 360, which was shown in San Francisco but won’t be available to buy until later this year. “These are just the first three watches,” Singleton said. “There are many more on the way.”
