Svepa bike is made up of unique combination of plywood and aluminum giving an elegant and eye-catching look to the bike. This innovative design of Par Blanking from Sweden is a multi purpose bicycle. It can be used as a normal bicycle or used by two people. One person as easily sits on the back seat and other person can stand on the rear footboard. The wheels also differ in size to make a balance. The smart use of a metal framework topped by plywood panels in this bicycle has come up as the most practical design you would have ever seen.

The bike is designed taking eco-commuting to the next level. The research and prototyping was built upon cleaning (fishing bikes from) the river Po’ in Turin, Italy, to get material for the first prototype. Cheap and as fast as possible. In the same time it directed the project towards the “No Oil” manifest and the integration of nature and it’s material in the bike. Laminated wood and aluminium was chosen for the frame. This gave the bike chock-absorbing character, and integrated fenders into the frame. The bike has it target among a hi-end, trend sensitive public, looking for fun while commuting short distance. You can carry a second passenger behind you, and the “surf deck” between pedals and front fender allows you to use it as a kick-bike. Very useful crossing streets and in crowded places were pedaling is difficult or even dangerous.
Lean Green Portable Power Machine features ultra-thin 800mAh high-capacity USB external battery for iPhone, android, iPads, laptops, and more, in simple words, it’s a power bank. Available in two styles – an ultra-thin (compared to competition) electric lime green fabric or supple white leather. Both are synthetics offering waterproof protection allowing digital users to harvest longer use times on their devices. Many design ideas of this unit translate nicely to allow comfortable grip and easy to keep in the pocket aside from its functionality. It is currently the only soft-touch line of external power banks available today. You can support this project here.

The CCC is a fascinating and futuristic concept car which is an ultimate solution for eventful city use with its compact design and mostly, the ability to transforming into a fully operational helicopter. When in the car mode, it is a three wheeled vehicle with 2 giant front wheels and one small rear wheel, which works as tail rotor when it transforms into copter mode. The blades remain folded hidden in car mode and can eventually pop out when required. The entrance is designed from the front through a pop up glass door and no passengers other than the driver are allowed to board on this single seater car-copter. The cockpit has a sphere at the driver’s right arm to control the CCC.
