The traditional pallet has dimensions of 1200x800mm. The space between tram tracks in most cities is above that width, but not in Slovakian capital Bratislava. What does this all mean: opportunities to create a custom travel solution using existing infrastructure.
That was the thought by Czech artist Moravec whom noticed the tram rail design back in 2008. But what he did next is inventive, genious and affordable. Using four wheels affixed to the bottom of a pallet he designed a new kind of “skateboard”. One that would lay flat on the tram tracks and allow him to ride as if it the infrastructre was designed just for him.
Moravec says: “The new transport vehicle brings change into the spatial perspective of a passenger in motion and generally changes the life of the city, through which the pallet can run,guided by a map of the city lines.”
