Summary:

Hyundai Moles Hide and Seek Bike Rack
Hyundai Mole’s Hide and Seek Bike Rack Concept is is a bicycle-parking device that does not obstruct pedestrians. Mole’s Hide and Seek Bike Rack hides underground, just rising above the surface whenever it is needed. This pops up when someone steps on the ground plate that surrounds its hole. When the Mole rack is hidden below the surface, its plate functions being a signal. It provides folks with directions and info about the area – for example, the direction in which they’ll find a public bathroom or bus stop. A solar panel for the top of the rack collects solar energy in daytime, which is used to power the particular Mole’s LEDs at night. These illuminate the actual area, alert people to the profile of a bicycle, and show that a rack is available. After any bike is parked, a fingerprint reader enables the cyclist to register his or her fingerprint into the system for locking and unlocking purposes. When a user’s fingerprint is recognised, the rack automatically locks as well as unlocks the bike.
