Duun: Enhanced Sand Dune Riding Experience

Sand dune riding is a sought-after and exhilarating recreational activity, yet aspects like safety, sustainability, and accessibility warrant improvement. Minimizing ecological impact through a sustainable approach is vital for preserving these fragile environments. Harsh climates and challenging terrains underline the need for enhanced safety. While exploring solutions focused on safety, ecosystem preservation, environmental harm reduction, and improved accessibility, Duun was designed. The electric-powered board excels on sand, this along with the airless omni-directional wheel being gentle on the terrain ensures an environmentally conscious and exhilarating experience. The AR integrated helmet enhances safety features for dune riding, while also providing the ability to capture and share the experience. Duun aims to comprehensively enhance the sand dune riding experience, recognizing the need for an integrated, sustainable, and accessible approach.
