The system development, prototype build Yi in a bike rack for the New York City Department of Transportation. The basic components are from the original Platonic geometric methods to drive, which is used to generate a complete set of components.Each rack may be generated by a variety of ways. It may be made of a variety of materials, including ABS plastic and numerous metals such as cast iron and bronze of Squiggle rack. Finishing choices will vary from material to material. New York City Department of Transportation prototype material is made of ABS plastic.
Future expectations of the project is to design a large number of the city and each user has a unique relationship of bicycle racks.
