The winner of 2009 Buckminster Fuller Challenge was announced yesterday. Sustainable Personal Mobility and Mobility-on-Demand Systems (SPM/MoD) was submitted by Smart Cities Group an interdisciplinary team of students at MIT. The June 6th ceremony will be part of a weekend long celebration in Chicago where the $100,000 prize will be presented to the winners .

Fly’s Eye Dome, one of Fuller’s best known inventions, will be on view at Merchandise Mart where the ceremony will conclude with a presentation by the visionary designer Bruce Mau.

It remains to be seen how this invention will further bike sharing attempts in urban centers, and whether it will be embraced by city dwellers especially in the light of projected public transportation fares increase.
