What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you’re cycling? Pedaling it, right? What if you didn’t have to do that anymore?

14-year-old girl Tejaswani Priyadarshani from Rourkela, Odisha designed an innovative bicycle that runs on air.

They call it an air bike. It carries a 10 kg cylinder of compressed air mounted on the bicycle carrier. The air lasts up to a distance of about 60 km.


A student of Saraswati Sishu Vidya Mandir of Rourkela, this idea occurred to her when she visited a bicycle-repair shop and saw the repairmen use air guns to detangle tyre knots.

Her father helped her with carrying out the experiments. After many designs, they bought an air tank with an opening for water. Everything was well fitted with a knob.

When the knob is turned on, the air transfers to the air gun near the paddle and it rotates the gear with the help of six different blades, which gets the cycle in motion.

The technique can also be applied in bikes and cars, interesting, isn’t it?
