London Boosted: Red Double-Decker Bus Does Push Ups [Photos & Video]

London Double Decker Bus Push Ups

How cool is this bus designed by Czech artist David Cerny? Designed to resemble an athlete doing push-ups, the mechanical sculpture has two huge arms attached, an electrical engine and a lot of wiring and suspension tools to make it into a piece of art named ‘London Boosted.’ Mechanisms build inside make the 6-tonne bus move up and down on the arms and it is accompanied by recordings of a groaning voice and video projections in the windows.

“There is one common exercise for every sportsman in the world, and that is push-ups.” ~ David Cerny

“It is training for sport activities but at the same time it is also punishment in armies and prisons. So the push-ups are a very universal physical activity…It is in a way very ironic.” ~ David Cerny

The bus will be on display outside the Czech Olympic House in London.
