Eton TurboDyne Seriesのデザインについて「身体・人間」の視点からみて、応募対象が提供できること
TurboDyne product feature excellent ergonomics, ideal for handling and especially for cranking: On AXIS the crank centerline runs right through the handle centerline, so force is exerted evenly as ones left hand holds the unit and the right hand cranks around it.
The Turbodyne series provides useful functionality: ROAD TORQ provides an uninterrupted light source and emergency beacon during a stressful roadside situation. All Turbodynes have powerful hand crank dynamos (most ever in a product) that supply a never ending renewable power source. Users never have to worry about batteries or power outages, which is reassuring in an emergency.
TurboDyne features material and manufacturing quality: All crank arms, crank hubs, and the AXIS handle are strong die cast aluminum. Some small details like the AXIS light switch and band select ring on ROVER are stainless steel. ROAD TORQ has fernelled red reflector legs and rubber feet. All products have a high grade tough polycarbonate shell.
These products dont consume batteries due to their internal renewable energy source. The parts are recyclable and they are not painted or plated.
ユーザー・社会に伝えたいことThe Turbodyne series is the ultimate American Red Cross emergency line. What makes it excellent is the useful functionality, its radical emergency aesthetic, superb human factors, quality materials, and internal renewable power source.
