Personal Mobility Devices (PMDs) have been a great form of green transport in the recent years. Accidents are however on the rise due to the lack of safety features present in these devices. This project aims to create a safer mobility device for the world in 2040, addressing the aspect of safety. smove is a Personal Mobility Device that provides users a safe and smooth riding experience through the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and design innovation.
If no one wants to continue being hawker, who else?
The current median age of hawker is 59 years old, yet the younger generation is reluctant to be hawkers. This situation, if persists, may lead to the disappearance of hawkers in the future. In the light of this problem, Hawker 4.0 – which consists of ‘The Stall’ and ‘i-Hawker’ – is created. Hawker 4.0 aims to be a facility for hawkers to succeed in their businesses, which situation may attract future generations to venture into the hawker scene.
The Stall is a renewed hawker stall with refined customer flow and sleek modern design specially catered to the taste of younger generation. Order and payment are automated to reduce queue and help hawkers to focus on their food preparation.
i-Hawker is a hawker stalls directory app that integrates digital and physical hawker experience. Customers can explore more hawker stalls and get rewarded for purchasing hawker food, while hawkers can establish business profiles and easily market their business using i-Hawker.
Chavelling is a series of light sculptures that aim to cultivate empathic curiosity within tea drinkers seeking rejuvenation by bridging screen-based and real experiences. Through stimulation of visual, tactile and olfactory senses, Chavelling encourages exploration of tea origins.
Displayed in tea establishments, Chavelling serves to promote tea’s origin, culture and sustainability.
With the increasingly prevalent use of technology,
movement seems to be missing from our
increasingly sedentary lifestyle. The purpose of
this project is to let users work with the Balance
stool to achieve a better sitting posture as they try
to find the most stable position. Balancing on the
furniture will introduce ‘bearable discomfort’ to
the users, encouraging users to take a short
break after sitting for a period of time. In doing so,
the chances of experiencing pains and aches
caused by muscle strain due to prolonged sitting
will be reduced. By rotating the chair on its sides
will allow for two modes of sitting, the Occidental
chair sitting mode and the Oriental floor sitting
HIVE footwear is designed for urban cycling commuters (18 – 35 years old), who are prone to muscle and foot injuries due to long hours of cycling and walking. Furthermore, the majority of the urban cycling commuters choose to wear walking or running shoes that are unable to provide sufficient foot support while cycling. Yet, cycling shoes in the industry today are often too uncomfortable for the cycling commuters to wear casually. HIVE technology consists of a re-designed and revolutionary shank plate embedded in the HIVE sole, to provide maximum foot support and comfort for both cycling and walking. HIVE footwear aims to challenge stereotypes of cycling footwear seen in the industry today and revolutionize the shoe-making process with 3D printing technology.
