Winnebiko II on 1988 CNN Science and Technology Report


Steven Roberts
This CNN piece aired July 4-10, 1988, and shows my Winnebiko II bicycle. At the time, I had completed about 16,000 miles around the US, and was about to begin work on the final version (BEHEMOTH), which was to take 3 years. The latest addition to the bike was an Oki cellular phone… high tech at the time. See for more on this and related projects.

This video is the first of a large pile of old VHS dubs that I will be converting and posting on YouTube. The bike is now in the Computer History Museum, and I am doing similar things with a sailboat.
