When curious minds of all ages swarmed the Technology and Gadget Expo in Melbourne in June, Bridgestone offered them a hands-on look at some of the innovative products on the market today – and a glimpse into the future.
Expo attendees were given the opportunity to test a range of pioneering products at the Bridgestone Trial Zone, including Dyson electric bikes and BajaBoard electric skateboards.
They also took spins on Bridgestone’s own Ecopia trikes, which have been ridden by a host of well-known Australian faces over the years – from actor Shane Jacobson and former racing car driver Larry Perkins, to V8 Supercar drivers Rick and Todd Kelly.
The trikes demonstrate the benefits of Bridgestone’s one-of-a-kind Ecopia low rolling resistance technology, showing riders just how much of an impact tyres can have on their hip pockets and on the health of our world.
For the environmentally conscious and those looking to save a few dollars they’re an exciting development, improving fuel efficiency by up to 5.7% and reducing CO2 emissions by as much as 5.8%.
Bridgestone’s very own BMW i3 and a world-record holding solar car built by the University of New South Wales also featured at the stand, satisfying those curious about the cars of the future.
The next stop for Bridgestone’s innovative tyre technology is Science Alive at the Adelaide Showgrounds from August 6-7. Hope to see you there!
