augmented-thinking is a collaborative knowledge space that redefines the way we explore, comprehend and share information in order to solve humanity's great challenges through collective intelligence.

The challenges humanity is facing like automation and unequal access to education/resources, are challenges of a “wicked” nature. They are system level problems. Where we need collaboration, we are stuck with reductionist tools and an egocentric mindset from the last century. Now is the time to design new products & services that foster the exchange of ideas and insights. Tools that provide researchers, innovators and decision makers with a holistic view. Tools that both widen people’s horizons and deepen their knowledge. This is the mission of augmented-thinking.


Inspired by the popular Japanese Minivelos – small wheeled urban bicycles for adults – and Petit Pli’s growing clothes for children, I came up with the idea for LIFECYCLE:

A bicycle that can grow with the child and beyond.

Especially during childhood this can eliminate the need for new bicycles parents will have to purchase, saving money and resources.
