Solving a problem no one knew existed comes Trotify, a new device that will make your bike sound like a galloping horse. With $26 dollars and a lot of imagination, you, too, can finally have a stunning colt without all the hassle of actually owning one.
The device, created by Original Content London, is billed as the “leading bike-horse hybridiser in the world.” Unfortunately, it is still in the concept stage; the firm is trying to presell 1,000 devices before committing to a public release next spring.
Judging from the demo video, it sounds like Trotify fails to make the same satisfying clop that King Arthur’s squire manually created using two coconut halves. Still, as most of us don’t have access to a personal squire, this should be an adequate substitute.
Of course, no post about a gadget that uses a coconut to make a bike sound like a horse would be complete without the scene from Monty Python that inspired it, so I’ve embedded a clip of the scene below. [Atlantic Cities]
