BISICKLE, COMMUTER BICYCLE

BRIEF: Class brief- The research report and proposal finalised under course Human-centred Design Innovation represent the information and applied research base for conducting this semester's work. This is the continuation of addressing the challenge of the design paradigm shift — from an object to activity — by adopting an activity-centred approach. In this unit you will be applying your findings to products or systems by positioning them within the social framework – consisting of people, culture, context and activity. My Brief- The brief and concept was generated from my own research paper into the socio-cultural aspects of commuter cycling. My own brief, as determined from the research, was to develop an innovative product to increase numbers of active commuter transportation methods. The product will be used to remove socio-cultural barriers in the context of commuter cycling. PRODUCT: The resulting concept is a recycled plastic commuter bicycle which is able to accommodate a large percentage of commuters by its ability to carry a much greater capacity of luggage and personal effects. The product also includes additional products such as the easy-build wheel and commuter handlebar design for greater control in varying terrains.
