DIRIGENT / Suit-case


"For the mutual coexistence of all objects, there is a common point of connection."
People may "plug" into the product or use a wall socket to obtain the necessary electricity. In the case of the Dirigent, a uniquely designed suitcase carrier, the electricity is generated by the motion of the rotating wheels as it is being used in traveling. The socket is located on the side of the carrier. It is totally self contained and is an example of a new kind of "green" energy product for travel. The energy that is generated by wheeling the Dirigent, is automatically transformed into 220V, making it extremely convenient for travelers.
