With the pollution choking us down to the wire and our modern day commuters being the biggest contributors, public transportation and bicycles could serve us some respite. We have designers who could help us know how these bicycles and public commuters can together be used to help us and they are more than capable for their design won a Seymour Powell award for best concept in the “Future City Mobility” design competition. This group involving designers Marten Wallgren, Il Choi, David Seesing, and Miika Hekkinen created multiple vehicles designed to integrate with a special bicycle and an electric scooter. The group considered the estimated traffic congestion in the centre of the London City in 2030.
They planned to create a car-free zone dubbed the London Garden and this zone had a system of bicycles whereby the energy created while riding would serve as a currency that you could pay while boarding a bus or a taxi. The energy produced while riding a bus could inturn power the bus that will run on internal batteries. The entire concept sounds alien as of now but will soon have to be implied if the human race wants to survive.
