The AEROCARRIER gives your cycle cargo-carrying-capabilities

City bicycles are diverse. Some of them are designed to carry heavy loads, others for speed. What if bicyclists want to use their bicycles for more than solely speed performance – but also for logistics. What if they don’t want to be forced, to always wear backpacks, even if they only want to carry a raincoat, EDC, or basic shopping supplies. The AEROCARRIER gives bicycles the additional storage they deserve. Just like most scooters which come with storage below the seat, the AEROCARRIER strap...

Meet 'Blade', the world's first 3D-printed hypercar

At first glance, any motorhead would be head over heels for Blade — a sleek sportscar with shimmery deep magenta facade. The aerodynamicity of the car is obvious from its low, curved volume. Yet, this isn’t just any supercar that has just hit the market. Created by San Francisco-based startup Divergent Microfactories, Blade’s chassis was entirely 3-D printed. 3D printing is already revolutionizing the manufacturing process around the world. Printing in 3D makes products such as furniture, jewe...

The Design Intelligence Award accelerates good project into world-class product designs

Design awards are often a mechanism to discover good design. A panel of judges help identify designs with potential, and reward them for being a good concept, or having a good execution. China’s premiere awards program, the Design Intelligence Award (DIA) operates on a slightly different path. It doesn’t just discover good design. It develops it. Working in part like an award program and in part like a product accelerator, the DIA Awards have a long, arduous, meticulous process. They identify go...

These self-driving robo-palettes will park your car while you go shopping

Perhaps the most useful application for self-driving tech is in the area of driving that annoys most drivers. Parking. Parking is perhaps the one reason I don’t enjoy driving. Looking for a spot, and then struggling to parallel park (and eventually take out) your car from said spot requires patience, skill, and willpower… virtues that I don’t possess, but a robot could.Hik Vision’s award-winning self-driving palette helps out by doing that task for you. Unlike other parking-assistant-robots th...

The Birò O2 is the only car to be made from more than 80% recycled plastic

Apparently, in just 31 years, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. It’s an incredibly scary statistic, given how many fish exist in the sea. The car company Estrima is all poised to do something about this horrible future prediction by reclaiming some plastic and using it as raw material. The Birò O2, a special variant of Estrima’s electric-scooter is, for the first time ever in automotive history, made from more than 80% recycled plastic.The Birò O2 is a variant of Estrima’s origi...

This tree branch inspired bike pump magnetically snaps onto your bike

Advancements in materials and manufacturing methods have led to bicycles carrying a sleek and aerodynamic form that slices through the air as they race down the roads, whilst being incomprehensibly lightweight. There is nothing more frustrating than being interrupted by a puncture… apart from having to carry around a bulky, under-designed bike pump that contrasts against the graceful form of the bike! This is where BRANCH comes in, as it aims to be a carefully considered and elegant solution to ...

If the future of vehicles is even half as beautiful as this, then we cannot wait! This elegant concept is the ‘Renault Project XY-2’, its designer recognized the societal change that autonomous sharing cars may introduce; where strangers meet and are accompanied on their journeys.

A bike that demonstrates how Japanese culture can influence automotive design

Artem and Vladimir believe Japan’s design ethos lies heavily on their culture and history, pulling inspiration from minimalism, origami, and traditions like the samurai spirit, but a heavy European influence has resulted in Japan’s large automobile industry following cues that aren’t originally Japanese. Setting out to design a motorbike that is indicative of Japan’s culture, spirit, and aesthetic, Artem and Vladimir designed the Motorbike for Great Japan.The motorbike’s design makes use of plan...

This RFID-blocking case is good for car keys, nightmare for thieves

Just like your contact-less payment cards stand a chance of being tapped into by a miscreant with a POS device, your car’s key-fob stands a risk of being hacked into, its signal being boosted or duplicated, and used to unlock your car. Ever since the introduction of remote-controlled key-fobs, car theft hasn’t decreased, but rather has seen a 56% spike according to the office of national statistics.The problem with key-fobs is that security for this is easy to compromise.

Ford’s self-braking trolley is perfect for supermarkets and airports!

The guys at Ford believe the technology designed to operate cars has the potential of bettering life outside the vehicle too. Starting with their design for a self-rolling mattress that keeps space-hoggers on their side of the bed based on their car lane-keeping technology, Ford’s moved onto bettering the trolley, arguably the most difficult four-wheeler to control.Trolleys are notoriously stubborn. Even as an adult, it’s hard to perfectly maneuver a trolley, so imagine it in the hands of a ch...

This is what self-driving cars would look like in an alternate reality

Taking a page from the dystopian future presented to us by the minds at Pixar through the 2008 animated hit Wall-E, Alexander Zhukovsky asked himself why electric cars look like… cars. Why don’t they look like Segways, hoverboards, or motorized wheelchairs, products that are, in theory, exactly the same hardware packaged differently. Zhukovsky’s vision for self-driving EVs are autonomous single-seaters that elegantly travel around cities and neighborhoods, on four wheels. Fashioned to look quite...

A self-parking scooter that chauffers you around

With shared scooters being the new go-to mode of transport for inner-city commuters and tourists alike, we have seen an infestation of these two-wheeled contraptions.

ROL may just be the answer to both of these annoyances.ROL completely transforms the user experience by removing the scooters reliance on manual intervention completely! This h...

A conceptual race-chariot for gladiators of the future

Worried that closed-cockpits were taking away the enthusiasm of watching a driver control a wild beast of an automobile down a racetrack, Dong Yi designed the Concept Chariot, a vehicle that brought back the joyous fervor the Romans felt as they watched their gladiators on the race-track, behind chariots led by wild stallions, fighting vigorously for survival.While being a gladiator in 2nd Century B.C. essentially meant having a death-wish, Dong decided to take the aspect of performer-to-crowd...

The newest, most efficient, and oil-saving way to lubricate your bike-chains

The “Khan” might be the most otherworldly BMW bike ever made

Pretty much bridging the gap between concept bikes and concept art for games and movies, Mehmet Doruk Erdem’s “Khan” is an eclectic mix of unbelievable, dangerous, and beautiful. However, if you’ve followed Mehmet’s work in the past, you know exactly what level of aesthetic beauty the Turkish designer works on. Khan, in many ways is classic Mehmet, but at the same time it’s just surreal for us mere mortals who have, up until now, only seen relatively normal-looking motorbikes.Erdem’s “Khan” conc...

A lubricating roller for your bike-chain that lets you ‘grease with ease’

Grease, as many of my white shirts will stand testament to, is an absolute nightmare when it gets on your person. Even a drop or so on your fingers can require multiple scrubs to get rid off, because that’s precisely the nature of the liquid. It’s supposed to lubricate, but it’s also supposed to stick around, eliminating friction between moving parts for a long time, before they need a second coat of lubricant.Ideally, the grease you apply on mechanical moving parts isn’t supposed to get on yo...

Help reinvent mobility! Lyft is looking for an Industrial Designer

The ride-sharing app that just went public with its valuation is definitely a disrupter in the mobility world.

Lyft’s next big move is to expand in the e-scooter business, with their hardware partnership with Xiaomi. Lyft is looking for an Industrial Designer to join its team in San Fra...
