"Jake designed Deus while studying for a Transportation Design degree at the Art Center College of Design. It uses nano phosphate batteries and artificial muscles to give it a theoretical top speed of 75mph.

This video demonstrates Deus’s intended functional ability: namely standing up while being mounted and then laying down for high-speed stability. While all this looks incredibly futuristic, according to Popular Science, its technology is grounded in reality, meaning a functional prototype may be feasible. The 36 artificial muscles, for instance, are made by Festo, while the Lithium Ion batteries are produced by Massachusetts-based A123.

“This isn’t a fantasy,” Loniak told the magazine. “I believe a working prototype could be made, but it would take a great deal of time and engineering.”
