The Tricane by Ryan Kirkpatrick Will Never Fall to the Ground

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.
