SR-Hab (Socially Responsive Habitat)

The SR-Hab (Socially Responsive Habitat) project is a mobile, self-sustainable bicycle unit for urban commuting and dwelling, developed in collaboration with students from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at McGill University in Montreal. A big part of existence today is mobility. With growing environmental concerns, commuters are making efforts to be more eco-friendly. My solution to this demand combines a commuter bicycle with a habitat that can sustain basic living necessities ‘off the grid.’ The electricity generated by the user powers the appliances within the habitat such as lights, laptop, iPod and cooking instruments. <
