OURA

JEPG

London’s Clerkenwell Design Week is an annual home to some of the worlds most creative trailblazers. Therefore, getting noticed within such an event is an achievement in itself. Introducing Renault Oura, a wearable transportation concept that claimed the first place spot standing out against the strong runner-up SYEO (Share Your Extra Office), a work commute pod with a configurable interior for personalised performance.

Imagined by a team of first year students, Lily Saporta Tagiuri, Evgeniya Chernykh and Zhenyou Gao. Renault sponsored a competition at London Central Saint Martins; again Oura stood out amongst other designs. The concept focused on how a person could begin to interact more with their immediate environment when travelling.

The vehicular suit would be crafted using woven steel, carbon fibre and silicone. Its wheels would come equipped with electric motors and gyroscopes. Pivots secured around the users waist would enable the unrestricted potential to travelling modes, ideal for urban locations. “If implemented today, Oura would already seriously reduce crowding, fuel waste, and traffic” say the creators.

What are your thoughts on “Oura” would you trade your car to glide through the streets?
