Concept Sketches and Final Structure

Model and User Scenario

Dilivar was refitted from a skateboard and a scooter. Front and back anchor plates are designed for the multi-functional transformation. Two more layers and extensional carrier were also added for trolley usage.

Final Design

When the handle is folded, the Dilivar is portable or using as a skateboard; as the handle is unfolded with an acute angle between the board, it is a scooter; to adjust the handle with an obtuse angle between the board, it can be used as a trolley with an extensional carrier.
