When we say eco-friendly vehicles, we have heard a lot about electric cars, bicycles and more. Student designer Anton Grimes joined the Australian Design Awards and presented his eco-friendly design called the Link Urban Scooter System. The Scooter itself may not be unique at all, but the concept of using it at the Central Business District of Australia made the Link Urban Scooter System Unique. This cute vehicle can be retrofitted to any existing Streetscape Smart Poles wherein users are allowed to hire one from a hub and return it to another hub where the scooter will be recharged. It will not only reduce carbon emission, but reduces the need of space eating parking lot as well. I just wish that this would be comfortable for use on any weather.
