Carr-e / lifting carriage


Men and maschines are best friends. Men identify with their machines. So why do lifting carriages still work and look the same way for centuries while the world of products changed rapidly? How can we improve the handling and how can we change the look to more lifestyle?
#These were the main user needs i was faced at the beginning of the project.
Carr-e has a direct steering with two axes for more control and to simplify usage. The energy you put in by pumping up to lift is recharged when you let the cargo down. For maximum power you can use your whole body weight for pumping by your legs. Recharched energy is used for a digital display.
