Working unit for Freelancers

Many people work at home without contact to others because of the rising possibilities that new technologies provide.
This tendency has advantages and disadvantages. Even though the worker has peace at home to be absorbed in his work, he might also lack direct sparring from others.
FreePort is a flexible work community, which provides an opportunity to increase the network of the independent worker.
The Worker reserves a Port for the time needed through the Internet or a mobile phone. When needed he thereby has the opportunity to meet others at diverse locations in the city.

A bicycle for urban living

The HPM bicycle is designed as a practical link for traveling people who combine a private car with public transport. The main idea behind the bicycle is to request drivers to park their car in suburban areas and continue their journey to the city centre with public transport. Thereby the hope is to minimize the daily environmental damage caused by cars in city centers at peek points.
Compared to other foldable bikes the HPM bike folds easily in a few steps and is a handy companion in the car, train, bus and so on.

Interactive learning tool for children

SwapIT offers children an opportunity to use computer technology in a new different way.
Usually, computers and computer games are an activity where you sit still and have to watch a computer screen. With the artificial world inside of the computer there is a risk that children become isolated from the physical world and other children. SwapIT gives the opportunity to design your own game with computer technology as an ingredient instead of a tool. Through cooperation with other children, they create “non-artificial” networks with each other where technology has a central part, but is in no way crucial. How to use the technology is optional, though if you want to, you can use it both in free play and in a teaching situation. SwapIT is designed for children in the age 6-8.
