You Will Literally Ship Yourself
The Moovel Lab asked for help to realise an alternative vision of urban travel based on resources we have readily available to us today. Imagine if we could use free space on trucks, trains, and cars to help people travel from point A to point B. With this in mind, The Moovel Box was born - a speculative design project proposing a service that “piggybacks” on logistics systems and existing infrastructure to satisfy our mobility needs. As part of the project, Takram designed several personal mobility pods that form part of an on-demand pick-up and drop-off service. The pods incorporated many key features to aid the passenger's comfort including; How can I work? How do I know where I am? What happens in an emergency? What happens if I need to use a restroom?
This project was not intended to be fully realised as a public offering but instead is part of Moovel Lab’s ongoing research to explore new ideas, roles, contexts and approaches for the future of mobility.
