An innovative public vehicle SPHERE designed by Copenhagen based Danish designer Øivind Alexander Slaatto. SPHERE is a public vehicle, accessible all over the city for everybody with an electronic ID (credit card/cellphone).
The user pays for the distance/time only, not for the vehicle it self or for parking tickets and bills for the mechanics.
“SPHERE” turns public space into private sphere and reduces the number of cars in urban areas.
SPHERE can be used for transportation or can be turned into a private place for relaxing or for a power nap.
