With this bike gets the Anglo-Saxon saying
Thinking outside the box a new meaning: because this velocipede has square (i.e.: box-like) tires. Reads Gaga, but is relatively ingenious from an engineering point of view.
The accompanying video was published on the YouTube channel
The Q. In the self-description of the channel is from
Scientific Videos and more the speech.
The video with a total length of almost seven minutes gives an impression of the effort with which the box bike was conceived and built.

How does the box bike work?
How did the inventor behind the box vehicle get the wheel
newly invented? Below are some of the stages of the journey to the finished vehicle:
- A square support frame ensures stability: The rails rotate in it
- A spinning gear: Installed on each of the four corners of the square hoop
- It has to be a pair of bicycle chains: The chains are welded together using small steel plates
- An ordinary bicycle tire: Will be cut into slices
- Screws are attached: These hold the rubber of the tires to the rail

Opinion: The box bike has no actual added value – and the tried and tested round tire bike will certainly not be replaced by the cube bike. The freaky velocipede is still amazing.
A note: in the video above, the bike only goes straight. The moving image does not show whether proper bike tours with sharp curves and hilly terrain are possible. But: Even without a zigzag course, this two-wheeler technology is undoubtedly impressive.

Do you remember the video game?
Enter the Matrixwhich – assuming the appropriate graphics settings – caused thigh slaps with its box-like tires? Are you impressed by the technical skill behind the unconventional two-wheeler, or do you generally avoid a bicycle saddle between your thighs? Feel free to discuss it in our comments.
