- mkslv participated in the NYC Bike Stand competition with the NYC Bike Pole. Our approach highlights the need for bike fixtures to be ubiquitous since users do not discriminate between official bike racks and happenstance objects. Proximity and visibility are key.
In conjunction with team member Mesve Vardar, research was conducted into usability issues and current bike racks in New York and other cities. Concept development included scale prototypes and visual mash-ups.
