Precious the Bike

No, I didn't break up with Jamis. He and I are still on great terms. But—and don't you dare tell him I said this—I'm not quite sure he compares to Precious, the bike with a brain. Oh yes, there's really a bike with a brain. Livestrong Foundation partnered with Breakfast, an agency in New York that seems to invent things, to create a specialized bike for a three-month cross country trip that is currently raising money for the Livestrong Foundation itself.

From the official website: "Precious' brain is an on-board device that captures all of his experiences, combined with a cloud-based system that analyzes those experiences. Put this all together and you get a bike that's able to express itself in his own words." Check out the following video for more information.

Now, I can't help but think—What would Jamis say if he could talk? And tell me, what do you think your bike would say if it could talk??
