An e-assist penny farthing would be interesting as the peddles start turning while trying to mount the thing and the e-assist kicks in...

I'll go with self inflating tyres and a handlebar pie dispensing machine...

Swytch bikes have an e-Penny, I've seen it on the adverts.
Shimano used to make electronic-shifting 3 and 4 speed hub gears.
I'd like to see STI / Ergo style shifters for 5 or 6 speed. And lightweight rims and tyres for 26 x 1 3/8 wheels. And a carbon Brompton.
