A volks cargo tricycle
A tricycle for a generation and more
The ultimate goal is a tricycle that is robust, long-lasting, repairable, aesthetic but not pretentious and, in its various avatars, can transport people and material.
With natural products such as wood, yarn and bast, it is a unique combination that can transport adults and varying loads, including an entire household.
Technical applications that require manufactured materials, will be designed for minimal environmental impact.
A street cable car vision
Urban cable car transportation
The cable car design reduces infrastructure costs. It reduces the need for robust, impermeable road paving. It can transport up to 3.5 tonnes and can run 24/7, as and when needed, with configurable load trigger points.
Sciyent revamps accepted positions, sans the hype of fancy terminology.
Avant garde is simplcity.
1. Welfare consequentialism: Replace rightness with goodness, where social good leads to social relations.
2. Public good vs. common good: Refocusing private gain to the gain of a larger corpus, where self-preservation is dependent on gains to the common pool, for peace and safety of all.
3. Social roles: The dichotomy that pervades our beings, in donning roles of office, can only be overcome, when the people alternatively bear responsibilities of office, such that they may be amenable to the opposing forces that drive such roles.
From Science to Art
An individual’s attitude may be amenable to change, but this change will not have a measurable effect on present-day systems. For a sea change to take effect, it will require community-led initiatives, permeating every aspect of our lives, from social behaviour to economic activity, from governance to democratic processes.
