The N6 designed by Matteo Gentile is a banana-shaped personal vehicle which can, as one can assume from the images, carry just one person. The wheels are made of tubeless tires supported by a steel frame. The vehicle is low-slung making getting on and off easy, without having to make the effort to jump down. The steering is cushioned providing the driver a nice resting place for his arms.
Implications - With so many new stresses emerging each day in modern society, consumers are looking for ways to relieve themselves. Products that feature a whimsical element are appealing to those who desire some sort of entertainment while completing their everyday responsibilities.
