Check out our winners and what the judges had to say about their entries:
“Well designed car like mobility device, design seems to be optimized for carbon fibre.” - Marcel Jung
“The equalizer is for me very promising, because it does not appeal like a handicapped device, yet is not complicated or over engineered in looks and seems to have the right visual human scale.” - Murat Günak
SECOND PLACE: Proton - Enduro Racing Concept by @Cosmotech“I like that this design allows you to go offroad and specifically that it looks fun to go downhill but at the same time, it is well thought out mechanism to go uphill. The Proton design looks very futuristic.” - Annika Zeyen
“Proton is a bit complicated in the style language but the charm is the complete redesign of a body shape. No reminiscences at all to any known device.” - Murat Günak
MOST INNOVATIVE: T.flex Leaning Bike by @siavashjafarijozani“This is a very innovative idea and not something I have seen before but something I would love to try right away!! I love that this provides real accessibility to off-road/extreme sports and that the design considers different seating positions depending on the person's impairment. This is my clear winner!” - Annika Zeyen
“Excellent work in catering to the needs of a wide range of athletes. Clearly explained CAD. Interesting rear wheel design. " - Calvin Williams
MOST ORIGINAL: DART by @SpeKterDesn and @vasilatos_ianis“Smart, compact and promising design for fibre composite, strong lightweight design will support agility.” - Marcel Jung“Dart is a result of a enthusiast design team and expresses a design of confidence for confident users!

MOST FUTURE FORWARD: Bi.Xr - Smart Self-Balancing Vehicle by @gbodesign, @jonashub and @LeoZago“Great idea! I love that the Bi.Xr allows the user to go off road whilst it is still very practical. It's weight is not too heavy and the the fact it can be easily dismantled and reassembled without the need for specialist tools is awesome! A great advantage over many other designs is that it can be easily transported in a regular car." - Annika Zeyen
