Shimano Shifter with the Computer Chip

Last year, Japanese engineers from Shimano visited France to test a prototype derailleur that shifts gears using computer chips.  They tested these shifters on pro cyclists.

Mechanics of gear shifting has stayed the same for quite some time.

But don't expect people to run and buy one.  They cost around $5,500 -- a lot more than most bikes.
