I am a product design engineer from Taiwan. I like the process of creating human-centred products, and I believe that design is the most effective way to tackle human problems. During my time at GSA, I learned about the importance of merging creativity with engineering, as well as gaining essential knowledge and insight into the everyday responsibilities of a product design engineer. I am particularly interested in the cycling industry, and my major project is also related to bicycle use improvement.
In the past few decades, bicycles have played an indispensable role in human life. Cycling also has well-established advantages for one’s health and the environment. However, bicycle theft has been a problem since the bicycle’s invention, and has become a social problem in many places. Bike theft has increased in recent years. Thieves can sometimes steal your bike even if you have locked it. This project attempts to improve the user experience while lowering the rate of bicycle theft. It can deter thieves from taking the bike by preventing the lock from being broken. If the lock is damaged, the handlebars are rendered useless and the bike cannot be ridden.
