FWD : Human Powered Vehicle Concept

FWD is a human powered vehicle concept which is neither a bicycle nor a tricycle. Both configurations exist in the same product, and allow use on both streets and rails. The model is designed in order to bring forward an excellent steering, braking and shifting system. The seat is very comfortable and can be easily adjusted as per your height. There is a box attached on the back of the vehicle for keeping your stuff and this box also gives support while driving. This ideal vehicle is one-seater and can be parked anywhere without any stand. Through the use of an integrated system of magnetic rails, which greatly reduces the force required from the user to propel the vehicle, fwd presents itself as a definitive eco-friendly solution, reaching to a much wider audience than that originally receptive to conventional bicycles. The rails also act as guides, guaranteeing space and security for the users in the chaotic urban environment. Overall the concept vehicle is worth trying on the roads.

FWD vehicle can also be used in rental system, once rented by means of a monthly payment, the bicycle/tricycle (fwds) can be obtained in any of several stations spread out through the city. Returning the vehicle to the station after each use is not required, but eliminates the need to either store or carry the bi/tricycle all the way across town (in a car, or bus) when you need to cover a greater distance. With fwd, you can take a bus to go to school, rent a fwd there to move across town, and return it before taking the bus back home. fwd is specifically targeted to college students, to which its existence is most beneficial, but can be rented by anyone.

Finally, in the ‘cruiser’ mode, the back wheels converge to the ground, effectively changing fwd into a highly mobile bicycle, suited for places where there isn’t a rail and for more adventurous uses.

Link Urban Modular Scooter System for Better Environment

Link urban scooter system is a modular transportation solution that you can retrofit with the present Streetscape Smart Poles. Anton Grimes has designed this superb concept electronic scooter and will be available for hire from a hub to ride to the preferred destination. After reaching there, users have to return it to another hub for recharging. Grimes have used the existing light poles to reduce the expenses of the unit and offers strong anchors that are able to carry both power and telecommunications to the hub. The main goal of the design is to reduce cars in the CBD as per Sydney 2030 plan and make a more pedestrian city.

Anton says :
“With increasing demand on an already over-stretched transport infrastructure it makes sense to shift the way that we move, by taking up less space per individual while in transit. The energy required to move the individual is also greatly reduced by reducing the size and weight of the vehicle.

The device also removes direct emissions away from the city and with the addition of environmentally sustainable power generation off-site, the device has the potential to have no net emissions.”

Bubble Shoe Concept

Shoes for leisure, for summer or winter; shoes for elegant, sporty, or casual times; shoes in brown, blue, or black. There are an infinite number of combination for this fashion accessory. Besides their elementary function of protecting the feet, shoes also express and represent us ? our style, values, taste, and personality. The progress of trends means that we are again and again compelled to buy new shoes despite the fact that the last year?s shoes may still be in impeccable condition. They are just out fashion. Bubble Shoe is based on the convergence of fashion trends and functionality. It offers the wearer the possibility of expressing his or her own values, lifestyle, and look. It is a transparent shoe. Its style, occasion and look are determined by the designs of the socks or stockings worn beneath.

The shoe itself has a durable sole, resistant to scratches and shock, and a shell composed of two layers of silicon plastic with compressed gas in between. The vamp is vapour permeable, airy, and at the same time water-resistant. It features excellent thermal protection, but still reveals our foot and ourselves. The foot is thus put on display, in a position requiring the wearer to provide it with ?make up? according to their own judgement, choice and courage. Socks have been specially designed for this purpose, and can determine the style and the activity into which the wearer is entering.
