BKR Wood Frame Bicycle features several innovative designs, it utilizes wood to get the best out of its physical and natural proprieties of sustainability, malleability, and elasticity. Constructed from plywood for its main structure and inner rubber gaskets, together they merge perfectly like a sandwich through the use of screws. The joint system that uses wood as its main material reduces any vibrations and is able to absorb any shocks.
BKR bike features “Easy Saddle” system, it’s an adjustable saddle that allows you to change the height of the seat quickly, simply by pressing a button. In this way different users can ride the bike comfortable. There’s a special designed dynamo installed on the front wheel which provides energy and speed/distance trip information directly to your smartphone which can be docked on the handlebars.
Novague, a Prague design studio, have proposed a rocking chair concept that will be able to produce enough power for a reading light by converting the rocking motion into electricity. The LED lamp is empowered by a dynamo that can convert the mechanic energy acquired by the movement of the chair into electric energy. A simple steam engine like kinematic mechanism is set under the seat which works with a sliding lever that pulls a flywheel disc while the chair rocks. Produced energy is either supplied to the LED lamp or deposited in the batteries for later use. The aim of the principle is to develop the awareness among mass people of producing their required energy easily by themselves.
Move Your Energy is a power-independent rocking chair with a LED lamp designed especially for reading. The lamp is run by dynamo which changes the mechanic energy obtained by rocking to electric energy. You produce energy needed for lighting on your own.
A simple kinematic arrangement is placed beneath the seat. Mechanism is similar to those used in steam engines and it works together with a sliding lever that runs a flywhell disc while you rock. Produced energy is either deposited in batteries or it supplies the LED lamp.
The principal aims of this concept were to arouse a discussion about „How to achieve the energetic self-sufficiency in the future“ and to make public think about how much energy we could save if we produce energy needed for common day-to-day activities on our own and moreover by amazing and spontaneous way that is friendly to environment.
The new two-seater NASA concept car is surely an eye catcher not just for its unique and innovative design but also in its ability to spin 360 degree at the same spot. This beauty has been designed by Czech designer students Marek Kedzierski and Michal Vlèek and has no doors! The upper portion of the car just lifts up as we have in the cockpit, even the seats are placed in the same manner, and quite innovative must say! The upper portion also closed very slowly over the passengers and exactly fits around the neck and head restraints. So get set take it out for a spin quite literally with Nasa car concept!
