Cane, IQ Stick, 2005–6
This is a Cane. It was designed by Hilton Beck. It is dated 2005–6. Its medium is carbon fiber, aluminum, rubber, acetyl, polypropylene, nylon, luminous pigment, steel, adhesives.
This strong, lightweight cane was designed with an innovative pendulum effect that “swings” easily with you as you walk. Should it fall over, it can be righted with the mere tap of a toe on the tip. The handle glows in the dark and the cone-shape stair guard on the base reduces the risk of the cane catching, causing the user to trip.
