I think the world needs more games which draw on the rich history of art and animation.
I have an idea for Citi Bike docking stations. The problem is that bikes need to be rebalanced quickly throughout the system, and right now that involves manually undocking, transporting, and re-docking each bike at a station. My idea is to have a modular dock that is like the PODS moving container.
Each station would have one or more modules of maybe 20 docks. A flatbed truck with a crane would pick up the entire dock module with the bikes still attached, and place it on the flatbed. The truck would be driven to another station which needs bikes, and swap an empty module with the full module. It would be much faster than the current, labor-intensive system.
They could even move bikes which need maintenance to a shop this way. When a station is empty of available bikes, usually the only bikes left are the broken ones. That dock module could just be shipped to a maintenance shop and replaced with a new dock module full of functional bikes.
I think Citi Bike is great, but there’s a scaling issue with growing usage. I’m seeing more broken bikes, and I’m seeing more empty docking stations at popular starting points and more full docking stations and popular ending points. I hope they can address those issues, because I find Citi Bike a great way to get around the city.
