Vintage Design: Toot-A-Loop

unique radios

Panasonic designed this combination radio/ light/ bracelet back in… 1972!  Yeah, this thing could pass for something on one of today’s design sites.
If I had one of these when I was a kid, I would have wrapped it right around the handlebar of my bicycle.

Aura Cyclist Lights

General Design, Product Design, Product Innovation

bicycle design

Riding a bicycle at night can be dangerous, but if you can become visually present, you can lessen the likelihood of an accident. Project Aura does this by not only illuminating the wheels of a bicycle, but also having a color change system to represent the speed of the rider. These should be standard on all bikes.

With more and more bike paths being created, it would be nice to see stations like this around.  This work station makes good use of a traditional vending machine.  It’s a combination bike rack and supply vending machine.

Product Innovation: VW Bike

VW bike

VW has revealed its newest transportation design: the bicycle. This foldable, compact electric bike has a range of a little over 12 miles, and cruises at a little over 12 mph. It derives its energy from the vehicle, not needing to plug into a socket or be removed from the vehicle to charge. I hope this concept becomes a reality.
