Have you seen a bike that can transform while someone is riding it? Well, here’s the Zweistil for you.

This bike was designed by Stefan Wallmann, the “Zweistil” is essentially a human powered vehicle that can be shape-shifted from an ordinary to a recumbent bicycle while driving.

Watch the video to see the bike prototype in action:

The frame can be shifted from high to low by simply shifting the rider’s weight (leaning backwards), after he or she pushes a lever to unlock the frame, while the frame geometry gets fixed again by releasing the lever.

Pretty cool huh?
