San Francisco’s famous Exploritorium, a hands-on science museum that articulately explains how the world works through interactive exhibits, hosted a 25th anniversary Loma Prieta Earthquake Expo today. Disaster Relief Trials SF was invited, so we happily unveiled the Xtracycle Disaster Response Bike prototype.  It carries relief supplies with an industrialized cam buckle-adorned cargo hold and then generates electricity in place, under an integrated silnylon shelter – to charge all those phones, flashlights, and radios, quickly.  We made fans and friends.
