How To Make Your E-bike Go Faster

There’s a lot of videos on Youtube showing you how to make your E-bike go faster.

Are they real? Does any of this work? I don’t know. I don’t have an E-bike to try it on.

Be warned that you may be breaking the law in your country by travelling more than 28 Km/H on an E-bike. You’ll definitively void your warranty by tampering with its electronics and who knows, you may completely wreck your E-Bike.

But if you’re one of those brave and adventurous types you may enjoy watching the following videos. Let me know about your experience.

How to increase your creativity

 

Have you ever wondered where creativity comes from? Or how it can be increased and improved? Have you ever seen a new breakthrough invention and thought ‘why didn’t I think of that?’

Have a watch and see this youtuber explain how he gets inspired to build new things. Robert explains a process of gaining new knowledge that you can apply to making inventions, building things that have never been made before, reusing things in unique ways to save loads of money and discovering unique solutions to old problems using new materials.

What is creativity?

The dictionary describes creativity as…

“the use of imagination or original ideas to create something; inventiveness”

Ideas for what to do in lock down

When you start exploring how things work and you are always thinking ‘how can this be applied to current problems?’ you soon realise there is no end to the things you can try. By the act of exploring, thinking and trying you’ll discover new knowledge. It’s in the doing that you’ll find this knowledge.

So many times I’ve had a good idea, a unique way of solving some problem and I asked a friend what they thought about the idea and they said “if that worked, somebody would have already thought about it and tried it and they would already have a patent on it”.

And yet I, still continue to discover new knowledge by exploring, thinking and trying. So many new materials and devices have been invented in the past 50 years. There is so much potential waiting to be explored by applying these new things to old problems and also to new problems that have arisen recently.

No new knowledge here – Robert Murray Smith.
