Kinyonga Cart: Transformable cart for the Maasai people of Tanzania

The Kinyonga Cart is a human-powered, wheel-based transportation system for moving people and goods. Much like a Chameleon (Kinyonga), it uses transforming mechanisms to adapt to its situation and environment. Targeting affordability, durability and variability of use, it offers a new way to move around for people in rural communities experiencing strain and time poverty.
