Guarding & Illuminating Crutch

The product is creative and points out demands of the disable.

LED illuminator can be switched on when walking in the dark.

It can be used as a stun gun to guard themselves when being attacked or robbed.

It is also stretchable, which is good because either too long or short will not be comfortable for the disable. 

Just want to make a comment after watching a news report on TV the other day about the accessibility in Taiwan

The crutch should have the Easycard built-in as well so that the disable are able to enter and exit the metro with more ease.

Moreover, GSM/GPS can be included, too, to be orientated or call for help when necessary.

After all, the crutch is designed for the disable to keep from inconvenience.

Million-Volt Zap Cane Is Like Real-World Lightsaber

 

Owning the Zap Cane is about as close as you’ll ever get to being Yoda, combining walking-stick and Lightsaber into one ugly but effective package. The cane is adjustable between 32 and 36-inches (still too high for Dagobah’s favorite Jedi master) for when you’re hobbling around, trying to teach that lazy, whining Skywalker kid to do some work, and it has a flashlight built in to cut through swampy mists.

But what if you need to battle Count Dooku (or, more likely, that hoodie-wearing ne’er-do-well) following down a dark street)? Then you brandish your Zap Cane, jab the mugger with the tip and fire. A one-million volt charge will be dumped into his surprised body, dropping him like Darth dropped Ben in the first movie. As the product blurb joyously says, “They’ll think it is just a cane until it is too late!”

The Zap Cane isn’t available everywhere, If you live in HI, MA, MI, NJ, NY, RI, WI or PA you’ll be glad to know that the grumpy old man harassing you in the line at the store can’t suddenly turn nasty. For everyone else, the cane will cost around $103.

QUESTION:

What functions do you expect for a crutch to make outdoor activity safer?

Your feedback will be very much appreciated!

防身照明拐杖

這產品突顯出對弱勢者的需求.當夜晚行走時可開啟LED照明.當遇到搶劫或攻擊時可使用電擊棒.來保護自身的安全.這算是相當有創意的產品.長度可伸縮.這也是個重點.

因為對行動不便的人來說太長及太短的枴杖都會造成行動不便的人的不舒服感.前一陣子有看到電視的新聞專題.關於台灣無障礙空間.的報導.有感而發.我想應該可以把優遊卡結合在拐杖內(使用感應的方式進出入捷運站)也是不錯.這樣行動不便的人就不用右手拿拐杖左手拿悠遊卡進捷運站或公車了.這樣也多了一項便捷的功能.

畢竟這是給行動不便的人使用.當然要減少使用者的負擔及顧及方便性.或是結合GSM/GPS定位來達到急難救助或報警功能.這樣這產品就更加完美了
