The walking stick design
This design was inspired by looking at disabled people and particularly old people ,the reason for this is that I noticed that the majority of people who use public travel is the elderly and there is already a market in walking stick and it has a great history in how it has developed over the years .
Just the other day this article about how disabled people in places like china and Hong Kong have trouble finding work due to there disadvantages and how some of the people are considered as second class citizen and are treated like lesser individuals and unlike like England and other more well off countries they do not have any help from the government (e.g benefits ) due to lack of funds from the government or there daily in come .
The article explain how only a third of the disabled population of china have been able to find work ,this article really caught my eye due to reason that china could still use the other two thirds of the population to there advantage increasing productivity and generally making china and other countries much more of an equal society .
Trying to grasp inspiration from taking photos around in Cardiff
The different design ideas
The design below was based on creating a more aesthetically pleasing medical mask for the people in china to prevent people who are sick from spreading it to other people .And by redesigning this product to become more productive and more aesthetically pleasing will help increase the amount of people to use this product and hopefully design the product to the point where it creates a new market for the medical industry .
Eco – Friendly hut
Simply to put this is a design in which combines nature and technology together in order to making a city more alive and doing this by using already technical designs in a city environment and adding nature around the design to help create a more alive and green city. This will help create more clean air in the city with plants creating clean air through the carbon dioxide produced in the city .
See through mobile phone
A very simple concept and creating more see through phone to prevent people on there phones texting running into traffic or other people causing anti-social behaviour making walking a more attractive choice for people .
