Get.a.Bike

Get.a.Bike is a system of renting and sharing bikes for locals and visitors in the city of Copenhagen. The goal is provide an easy service to encourage the user to return the bikes to the stations.

First the user goes to one of the stations to register and leave a deposit. In return the machine will give a personal key with a bar code to use to release the bikes. When the user takes the bike from the station they have 24-hours to use it. Each bike has a timer that gives visual feedback to the user showing how much time he still has. If the user doesn’t return the bike in time they will lose their deposit made before. The next step in the project would be to prototype the service to get feedback from users.
