Green Technology is associated with being environmentally friendly, but is sometimes considered boring. Well you can forget about the boring part! Designer Eric Strebel gives us a good look at what happens when you combine ingenuity with green technology. The Willow ECO Three Wheel Run-A-Bout is a three wheeled electric scooter that is made from laminated wood.
The laminated wood provides a sturdy and cost effective frame capable of carrying two people plus some small supplies. The Willow also features recycled airless tires with a front hub-less wheel basket, independent rear suspension, and uses local sustainable materials avoiding plastics. An app on your smartphone will control vehicle management features such as charging and navigation.
Designed for the small streets in tightly knit communities such as Amsterdam, this run-a-bout will be a perfect alternative to the traditional bike when you need a break from every day exercise.
