About the ROVER Packhopper
The ROVER Packhopper is a sport, fitness, and recreational product invention created by our Ontario product design agency, Mako Designs’ top industrial design services for our client, Eric Coffman! Made for tennis players and fans everywhere, Eric’s inspiration for the ROVER pack hopper was to create a way to make it easier to carry everything you need to practice and play a great and efficient session of tennis. The ROVER Pack Hopper is a backpack specially made for tennis that is able to hold up to 85 tennis balls, as well as a large pocket for racquets, numerous small pockets for accessories, and mesh pockets for water bottles. The backpack is easy to carry and can be wheeled around easily around tennis courts and other terrains. With extendable legs, the ROVER Packhopper can raise tennis balls to the exact height that you need to help feed tennis balls to help work and practice on your service. If you want to watch yourself serve and practice, the ROVER Packhopper can hold your phone through a handy compartment and film you while your practice, making it possible to monitor and watch your progress.
About the Companion Bike
Invented by our client Quan Pham, the Companion Bike is a tricycle style bicycle that features a removable front seat and a foldable carbon fiber frame. Like every genius product, the Companion Bike is the perfect solution for those who are unable to ride bikes. What the companion bike can offer is the freeing feeling of riding a bike accompanied by a close family member or friend! While one person can sit in the front, the other can ride the bicycle from behind and help transport the other person around. Not only is this invention perfect for those with mobility challenges, elders, or kids, but also works as a great option for when you need to move large items from one place to another!
The Companion Bike is not only helpful is who it can serve but comes with a bunch of great features that make it a convenient and efficient product for the owner. Our Ontario product design agency made it possible to make The Companion Bike feature a carbon fiber frame that is designed to fold making it easy to store or place on a car rack for travel, is adaptable and easy to use, is effortless in its set up or getting to other places and is allowed for use no matter where you want to go!
