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

A student at the Swedish 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 the 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 more Tron inspired than Marshall's rather traditional style.

Slung between two enormous hubless wheels is the body of a motorcycle, with enough seating space for two riders. Beneath the seat is storage space for musical instruments. The frame itself is rigid, as the wheels turn inside the rims, with a cut-out at the base allowing them to come into contact with the road.

The wheels themselves have a double 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!
