DTV Shredder & BPG Motors
I am a 20 yr old engineering student at MIT.
I recently started a company which is developing an all electric motorcycle/unicycle called the Uno. The project started out as a highschool science fair project. The Uno first became public a year ago when the magazine "Popular Science" chose it as the invention of the year for 2008 and placed it on their cover. Since then, the Uno has graced magazines and newspapers around the world including the wallstreet journal, The New Yorker, The Chicago Times. The Uno even got me an invite to a pajama party at the playboy mansion ;)
I have always loved motorcycles having grown up watching Monster Garage and Junkyard Wars. My Opa was an engineer and I spent countless hours playing in machine shops as a kid. I also like extreme sports and have started an extreme sports company which builds this really cool powered snowboard/skateboard called the DTV Shredder ( http://www.bpg-motors.com ) .
School is not necessarily my thing, but i see it as an amazing opportunity. But my real passion is pursuing these kind of projects. I'm planning on branching out into regular electric streetbikes.

Good Luck everyone!
The target Audience is anyone interested in extreme sports.
The DTV Shredder encompasses aspects from a variety of extreme sports ie: snowboarding, skateboarding, motocross, Wakeboarding, ATVing, Snowmobiling
People from a cross section of sports are going to relate to this sport.
The Demographic for the Shredder is anyone between the ages of 10 - 30 yrs old.
I'm need a DTV Shredder Uniform. It is a ground breaking sport which has no safety equipment yet, no designated style or look.
I'm looking for 3 looks, the guys, girls and a model look (skimpy/slutty clothing, leather jacket etc...) .
- The DTV requires some safety gear (Helmet and wrist guards)
- It can be used in both hot and cold weather
- Goes 30 mph so the rider needs to be protected if something goes wrong or bails (i'm envisioning something similar to motorcycle gear?)
- The clothing also needs to be light enough to enable the rider to perform tricks and have full body control.
The DTV is going to be featured on a RedBull Add and showcased on MTV's Nitro Circus. The outfits designed will be used to create real clothing and used in photoshoots.
The Uniform should be a combination of different styles to make one coherent look.
I uploaded a bunch of photos that will be helpful with the design to a zip file at:
The file is called Uno Uniform Pictures.
I'm looking for logo placement, colors and style. I'd like to see the figures both positioned on a side profile of the DTV and just the models alone.
Good Lock Everyone
