Designers on Golfbag

I always say it’s important for designers to attack everything. I mean you and me, designers, should not only choose a field to go into, but should also pay attention to and hope to improve on every little thing in their environment. And if you’re one of the folks like this designer, Hamit Kanuni Kuralkan, you might just enjoy yourself a game of golf! And right here is the Kuralkan improvement of the golf bag.

Made for an event judged by Callaway Golf, made to be part of the next generation of buggies. This “Soft Buggy” employs Titanium nickel alloy and dielectric elastomer for the flexibility needed to keep the cart flat, even when it’s up a hill. Flexibility and ease in turning, that’s what this’s all about.

    Eh, nobody uses pullcarts anymore. It’s either a caddie or an electric cart. Plus they have pullcarts that have shocks similar to this, but they also include other amenities like a place to store golfballs, tees, and scorecards. And they fold up easier. So this doesn’t solve a whole lot of problems or make it stand out in the market.

  • doesnt solve any problems but it sure looks cool

    I really don’t see how the shape memory capabilities of the titanium nickel alloy and dielectric elastomer are used in this device. Maybe you could elaborate.

    I agree with Dan i don’t see how the dielectric elastomer is being used in this concept. I would be interested to see how this technology is being used in this device.
