The Backwards Brain Bicycle

Just like riding a bicycle… well not really.

Riding a bicycle is a skill that once learned is meant to stick with us for a lifetime – it is never forgotten. But what if I told you that there was a special kind of bike that can make everything you learned useless?

As Engineer Destin Sandlin from Smarter Every Day demonstrates you can only ride this bike if you actually unlearn riding a bike! It took him 8 months to re-wire his brain to be able to ride the Backwards Brain Bicycle and then a good 20 minutes to re-learn how to ride a normal bicycle.

Watch this super video that leaves you with a real appreciation of the amazing way our brains work…
