Heard of the car that talks? This is the bike that tweets

They say you should never tweet and drive, but what if you're a smart bike sending out tweets as you cross America for charity? That's what a bike called Precious is doing right now.

Created by a group of New York City-based inventors called Breakfast, Precious is equipped with a host of sensors that deliver information about the temperature, speed, gradient, humidity, direction and GPS location. The bike then uses that data to create witty tweets about how it's "feeling." giving Precious some near human-like qualities.

You can follow Precious on its Twitter feed or at its website, where you can also make donations to the cancer-fighting charity Livestrong.
