The designer sees Supple having the ability to join with others to form a two-person tandem "motorcycle" or four person automobile
Mohamad Sadegh Samakoush Darounkolayi's entry into this year's Michelin Design Challenge is an automated, self-balancing personal transport chair balanced on an omnidirectional ball
After receiving navigation instructions via the touchscreen console, Supple would take care of transporting the seated passenger to the desired destination
Despite not becoming the personal transport revolution that it was designed to be, the Segway has provided a wealth of design fodder for numerous self-balancing concepts, prototypes and production single occupancy vehicles. Mohamad Sadegh Samakoush Darounkolayi's entry into this year's Michelin Design Challenge, however, probably owes more to the Disney/Pixar film WALL-E – hopefully the users of his Supple concept won't end up being the grossly overweight, lethargic, mentally-challenged descendants of humanity like those aboard the Axiom cruise ship.
