Experimental, Product Design
We wanted a way for new hires at AKQA to get to know each other and the city of San Francisco. This led us to creating Pilot - a tandem bicycle that helps new starters at AKQA find new places and meet new friends.
What started as an idea in the sketchbook became a reality when we found the perfect vintage Schwinn Town & Country tandem for sale in Marin county. We rigged up a Raspberry Pi with onboard wifi, and gave the thing a new paintjob and Brooks saddles to boot.
