The Scooteroo project adds an extra level of enjoyment while using the Summit X3 Pram around town. The attachment turns your X3 pram into a solution for personalised, short distance transportation for you and your child. It creates a different way for busy parents to exercise whilst interacting with their child in a positive way. These positive interactions are vital for parent-child attachment which have long-term mental health benefits.
It’s easily attachable to your pram yet stow-able when arriving at your destination, allowing you to scoot to the supermarket, purchase what you need and then scoot home. As the X3 allows users to switch between a fixed and swivel front wheel, providing both a steady straight line and great manoeuvrability, my design has mirrored this. The three-wheeled platform consists of two fixed front wheels and one rear swivel wheel.
My passion for this project originated by watching my newborn nieces and nephews beginning to explore the world while aboard their pram. Its these joyous experiences of shared adventures that I want to encourage.
This project has shown me various challenges that need overcoming to take a project from ideation through to a refined prototype, these lessons will be extremely valuable for future projects.
