拐杖 / Walking Stick


The old can put the bus card at the front section of the stick. The design combines the card set with walking stick by using Chinese traditional tenon-and-mortise structure, which makes the card set convenient to be taken out and installed. The structure is firm and the bus card would not be lost easily. In this way, the old can just close their cards to the card reader when they get on a bus. The old get on the bus with sticks in hand and meanwhile finish the action of swiping their cards. That is to kill two birds with one stone!
