Walking Sticks are meant to help the elderly and disabled get around easier, but when not in use they are often prone to falling over, which is a nuisance to those with limited mobility; enter the Tricane by Ryan Kirkpatrick, an industrial designer based in Sydney, Australia. It has a clever and convenient function that allows it to stand on its own when it is not needed.
The Tricane by Ryan Kirkpatrick achieves this freestanding capability through the use of a tripod attachment that is manually triggered to open. Made out of anodized aluminium, this function doesn't take away from its overall lightweight, compact and good-looking design, which happens to resemble a classic cane. Although there is no word on whether it will be produced, such a good concept shouldn't go to waste.
