SteppGo – Human Powered Personal Transportation to Move Around the City

The conceptual design of SteppGo was developed within the scope of the topic Human Powered Mobility in Hybrid City Cairo. In a major capital city like Cairo, where cars dominate the streets, hours are wasted commuting on a daily basis. Due to the underdeveloped infrastructure, bicycle culture is barely present. This leads to time-consuming traffic jams and shortcomings in respect to exercise, leisure time and outdoor activities. SteppGo offers a human powered alternative for people, especially sports enthusiasts, to move around the city more actively by merging exercise and mobility.

SteppGo combines a tricycle with a stepper, offering stability on three wheels as streets are commonly quite uneven. To effectively power SteppGo, it is based on a treadle mechanism to ease the forward motion of the standing tricycle. It is equipped with a height-adjustable steer handle tube to suit the user, as well as front and rear lights to ensure safety and night vision.

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.

Sada Spokeless, Foldable Bike Without Sacrificing Its Dimensions for Portability

Not wanting to reduce the dimensions of the bike, Gianluca Sada has designed a spokeless folding bike, Sada Bike. Realizing the concept of folding bike usually focuses on reducing weight and dimensions that usually lead to smaller sized bike, Sada feels that small frames and wheels only means expense of stability just for the sake of compactness and portability. The smaller size of the frame sacrifices rider position while driving while the smaller wheels are affected by variations in terrain. These conditions are not present with traditional bikes, however, the rigid chassis makes them inflexible during transport on public transport.

Sada Bike aims to provide you with a standard bike yet can be transformed into compact unit during transportation. Its 26-inch wheels don’t have spokes thus creating minimum size when folded which can be done in single movement. The packaging container can also function as a backpack, pretty cool heh?
