Execution

We invented an epic bicycle accessory “TURNTABLE RIDER” which converts a bicycle into a musical instrument. The two wheels, become jog wheels. The handbrakes, become sound pads. Mix and scratch at will. Mixing two youth cultures: DJing and BMX, with interactive technology, TURNTABLE RIDER transforms the COGOO bicycle into a vehicle of communication to urban youth leveraging the fun of bicycle sharing. As if sharing the music, the groove of COGOO was widely shared all over the world through nationwide music festivals, iTunes, youtube, TV news and social media. Consequently comments asking for commercial production of TURNTABLE RIDER poured in.

Strategy

COGOO is a bicycle sharing service targeting the urban young people using the fun of sharing the latest technology. However, the culture of bicycle sharing was not rooted at all in Japan. This new service will be launched in this context. To introduce the fun of bicycle sharing to the young people, and a new relevant method is needed to get this new service to catch on in their culture.Although the DJing and BMX cultures were both popular and closely related until now, they have never been united by one product. By attaching TURNTABLE RIDER, COGOO bicycle opens the door to two big youth cultures. Young people enjoyed riding it, hearing it, and grooving to it. TURNTABLE RIDER worked with double impact. First, It’s fun to share a bicycle. Since TURNTABLE RIDER comes attach to COGOO bicycles, it directly brings attention and publicity to the GOGOO service.
