The Longboard Stroller – sustainable urban mobility

By Lorrin Windahl.

I must say that I’m pretty excited by this latest product discovery. Not only does it appeal to the sustainable designer in me, but the mum of a one year old as well. The Longboard Stroller is still in development but with prototype testing underway hopefully it will be in stores soon.

The Longboard Stroller, developed by stroller and buggy manufacturer Quinny, is an experiment in urban mobility. It is a stylish modern day Frankenstein – the merging of the skateboard with the stroller. And the result looks pretty cool. When I first saw it, I said to myself, “I want one!”. And why not, it looks like great fun. And not only that, it promotes exercise, spending time with your child and getting out & about in your local community. All without congesting the roads and using your own human power.

By utilising modern tools such as social media, the designers are engaging with the general public to ensure that they achieve a user centred design.
