Nova is a self-stabilizing walking aid inspired by the balance-promoting and stabilizing technology behind Segway. I created a device that can stabilize itself while assisting stabilization of the user. As the user, it’s cumbersome to have to pick up the device off of the floor or having to prop it up right. As for the design of the product, I introduced innovation and modernity with relevant and forward technology while incorporating familiar aspects. A big portion of this consumer audience is of an older age, so incorporating familiarity was very important. With this, I blended elements of modern technology with nature and biomimicry.
