The Eclipse rickshaw is an eco-friendly people mover designed by Kenneth Cobonpue. The vehicle is actually a combination rickshaw-pedicab, and is powered by pedaling as opposed to running. The Eclipse has a modern design, featuring an iPod dock, speakers, a fan and cup holders.

The Eclipse rickshaw is made up of weatherproof and recyclable materials. The canopy of the Eclipse can be closed to provide privacy and an escape from the weather. Cobonpue's design is still in the conceptual stages, but it's one that has the potential to be big. Many countries use gas-powered rickshaws to move people. These vehicles are faster than their more traditional forefathers, but they also pollute the air with harmful emissions and obnoxious noises. A pedal-powered alternative would be a great compromise, providing decently fast transportation with no harmful emissions.
