Eclipse pedicab designed by Kenneth Cobonpue

World-renowned Filipino designer Kenneth Cobonpue gave a makeover for the truly Pinoy transport system - the Pedicab as he turned it into a classy, modern ride.

Named Eclipse, the design by Kenneth Cobonpue boasts of an iPhone docking base, speakers, cup holders, and cooling fans within its moon-like recesses. It retains the original open design, but panels on either side of the pedicab can be pulled down for added privacy. A cover of acrylic fabric can also be drawn around it to protect passengers from puddles and rainshowers.

The pedicab used lightweight materials such as aluminum and polythylene for its frame, and waterproof, hand-stitched faux leather. An alumnus of the prestigious US design school Pratt Institute, the Cebu native consciously used environmentally-friendly materials to future-proof his wares.

Among other recent projects, Cobonpue offered to re-design the Ninoy Aquino International Airport for free.

His team's design aims to turn around the airport's notorious reputation for being one of the worst airports in the world, a distinction the airport has earned twice in the past three years.
