Designed in China - Sling Bike

In modern China, people are living with stress, pressure and they rarely smile. Mobile devices have games and apps but this does not promote exercise and a healthy lifestyle. Design research explored traditional Chinese toys and games but final inspiration was from contemporary digital games like angry birds. The project proposes a toy that will make people happy and engage young adults from 18 to 25 years old. The SLINGBIKE concept is an oversized slingshot on a four wheel electric bike. Water balloons, plush toys and snowballs are the ammunition. Young adults work out and build muscle mass like in a gym. Most of all they have fun! Designed in China

Sling bike designed in China by Master of Industrial Design student Zhu Kongyou - Carl.
