Tokyo Smart Wheel : Smart Guiding System for Tourists

Tokyo Smart Wheel offers smart guiding for tourists that are not familiar with the city of Tokyo. It can be pretty challenging for them to navigate the city, especially those with lack of language skills needed to communicate easily. Even some streets don’t have name and the lack of Wi-Fi access makes it even more difficult to explore this awesome city. Considering these issues, especially when Tokyo will host various Olympic events in 2020, these industrial designers have come up with a design proposal for the solution.

Tokyo Smart Wheel is your personal guide to the city of Tokyo. It’s an electric, self-stabilizing unicycle which can be found in different locations near venues, parked in one large station. Once you tap your ticket to the main station, the wheels are unlocked, it is also accompanied with a smart bracelet that can be used to activate the wheel when worn.

Hyper-Speed Vertical Train Hub : A Futuristic Train Station For The Year of 2075

Hyper-Speed Vertical Train Hub is a futuristic proposal for our future advanced public transportation network. One of great challenges we’re going to face in the future is space, this concept train goal is to resolve this issues sometime around 2075. It offers deliverable and sustainable solution for next generation transportation by building the station vertically instead of taking so much space on ground.

In the future, we believe our world’s population will dramatically increase, resulting in higher demand for goods, food, fuel, natural resources, and land. Most future’s population will settle towards live in mega cities that leads to competition and pressure for adjacent suburban land. We will have to explore more efficient and innovative forms of public transport to accommodate those needs.

nThree Electric Vehicle Offers The Comfort of A Car with The Cost of An E-Bike

nThree electric vehicle aims to provide you with affordable, personal vehicle that features the comfort of a car yet with the cost of an e-bike. It sounds pretty ambitious and interesting, doesn’t it? Let’s read what these designers have to say about the project.

Following the recent electric revolution of lightweight vehicles around the world, the nThree is a new design, following the very successful nCycle e-bike concept. With the irreversible process of global economies turning towards renewable energy, the way we see and use the city has already changed and is set to do so dramatically in the next few years.

With our increased awareness and sensitivity towards energy consumption, courtesy among others of the most recent economic crisis, in the last 4-5 years, personal transportation has begun a slow but steady drift away from the model we have come to know in the past century. The 10s and hundreds of new e-bikes and electric cars like the Renault Twizy or Toyota i-Road have shown the way to a more personal and conscious approach. Our new concept builds on the characteristics and refines the strengths of these vehicles to bring electric power even closer to the mass market.

Small electric cars, tricycles and quadricycles all suffer from the same inherent drawback; they are meant to be cheap and affordable but they end up being expensive like real cars because they are BUILT like real cars. The mission on the nThree was to address these conceptual and design shortcomings and design an affordable, single-seat electric vehicle that would offer all (or most) of the comforts of an electric car at the cost of an e-bike.

To achieve the objectives, the nThree electric vehicle was built with a simplistic approach reminiscent on the nCycle. In first place, the vehicle was reduced to the most essential stable geometry of three wheels to reduce cost. Even though the latest small electrics are a great way to move around the urban areas, there is something about these offerings that does not look great at all: Price. Starting from about 7000 Euros and above these 1-2 seaters cost almost as much as a cheap standard car and more than many used ones in good condition.
