Is it a motorcycle? Is it a disco? It's a discomocycle!

A student at the Sweden's Umea Institute of Design knocked together this crazy concept of a mobile Marshall disco.

Wouldn't it be great if you could have your very own disco everywhere you go? Forget the shoulder-borne boombox -- student Yuhan Zhang from Sweden's Umea Institute of Design has brought mobile music into the 21st century.

Called the Marshall Dicycle, the concept is designed around amp maker Marshall, although the look of the thing seems to skew more toward "Tron" than Marshall's rather traditional style.

Slung between two enormous hubless wheels is the body of a motorcycle, with enough seating room for two riders. Storage space for musical instruments sits beneath the seat. The frame itself is rigid, as the wheels turn inside the rims, with a cutout at the base allowing them to come in contact with the road.

The wheels themselves also function as amplifiers, with an array of knobs on each one. All you have to do is plug in your instruments, and boom! Instant disco!
