The balance between the development of science and technology, environmental protection and sustainability is an important proposition to be discussed in the world today.

In the future, sharing and personalization will coexist. We hope to integrate the two, which can meet the personalized needs of customers, and have shared modules to optimize the use of resources.

Interdisciplinary cooperation, considering mobility issues from a new perspective: car companies provide shared mobile units (shared flywheels), and clothing companies provide flexible dressing that matches each customer’s own body shape. The multi-section magnetic metal unit and the potential knitted structure make the design switch between clothes and vehicles, thereby achieving the purpose of Upcycle, and create more and better possibilities.
