Svepa bike is made up of unique combination of plywood and aluminum giving an elegant and eye-catching look to the bike. This innovative design of Par Blanking from Sweden is a multi purpose bicycle. It can be used as a normal bicycle or used by two people. One person as easily sits on the back seat and other person can stand on the rear footboard. The wheels also differ in size to make a balance. The smart use of a metal framework topped by plywood panels in this bicycle has come up as the most practical design you would have ever seen.

The bike is designed taking eco-commuting to the next level. The research and prototyping was built upon cleaning (fishing bikes from) the river Po’ in Turin, Italy, to get material for the first prototype. Cheap and as fast as possible. In the same time it directed the project towards the “No Oil” manifest and the integration of nature and it’s material in the bike. Laminated wood and aluminium was chosen for the frame. This gave the bike chock-absorbing character, and integrated fenders into the frame. The bike has it target among a hi-end, trend sensitive public, looking for fun while commuting short distance. You can carry a second passenger behind you, and the “surf deck” between pedals and front fender allows you to use it as a kick-bike. Very useful crossing streets and in crowded places were pedaling is difficult or even dangerous.
The egg shaped scooter concept is ideal for one person commuting with an elegant and sporty look that can offer the feel of riding a sports bike. This Egg Scooter provides maximum safety for the riders by featuring sliding doors and front and rear bumpers. However, the front bumper structure has limited the front wheel rotation to 70 degrees, 35 degrees each to left and right from the center. The inner surface of the sliding door contains an armrest structured outfitted with airbag. The soft and surrounding seating arrangement makes it comfortable and safe for the riders to drive even on the roughest surfaces. The stylish front and rear lights have innovatively positioned to make the scooter stylish and attractive enough to attain the attention from all range of people.
Car accident can lead to fire which usually traps passengers from getting rescued. Carkoon tries to find a way to protect baby during this incident by developing the world’s first child car seat that employs active AirShield technology, Carkoon Safety Car Seat. It works by covering baby in the event of an accident, baby will be safe inside a “cocoon” waiting for firefighter to rescue him.
This car seat has been designed to face the rear of the vehicle because this means any forces put on the baby are spread over a greater surface area, the back of the car seat. If the baby used forward facing car seat, during a collision, baby would receive huge pressures on the head, back and neck areas which are all vulnerable and developing areas.
