Yamaha Deus Ex Machina Motorcycle

Designed by Jake Loniak, a student at the Art Center in Pasedena for Yamaha.

The Yamaha Deus Ex Machina exoskeleton is an immensely futuristic-looking, single person’s stand-up vehicle created by Jake Loniak, a student at the Art Center Pasadena.

“The vehicle is powered by ultra-capacitors and doped nano-phoshpate batteries (similar to the ones currently used in hybrid cars) and it is controlled using 36 pneumatic muscles with two linear actuators set along a spine consisting of seven artificial vertebrae,” Gizmodo explains. “Even the helmet is pneumatically attached.”

The designer believes that it could achieve a top speed of 75mph (0-60mph in 3 seconds) with a recharge time of 15 minutes and cycle time of one hour.

As an exercise in urban transportation we love the engagement a machine like the Deus would require. That said, the lack of storage or securement for a briefcase, purse or satchel means that even the average urban commute is beyond the Deus Ex Machina’s current capabilities.
