1. Vespa 98
Vespa 98 electric concept version is the reinterpretation of the classic Vespa, produced by Enrico Piaggio. It is reimagined as a modern version of the scooter with sleek and streamlined features while also retaining its retro feel. The front has a more striking look than the original one with a contemporary handle. Similar to the original version, the front mudguard has an LED headlight. Instead of the rear-view mirrors, the lidar placed at the rear gives a notification to the rider. The single-seat scooter has a 30 Ah lithium-ion battery pack situated in its belly along with a huge storage area. The curved tail lamp strip of the rear indicator gives it a unique and clean appearance.

2. Contessa EV
Contessa EV concept is a reincarnation of Hindustan Motor’s Contessa with its new and bold design. It is an official invitation by Mightyseed Designs to Hindustan Motors to re-enter the Indian market with an electric car concept. Moving away from the rigid lines and boxy look of the older version, Contessa EV is a blend of elegance and simplicity. To achieve a distinct look, they have lowered the body and increased the width of the cabin in the EV model. As it is a concept model, the team became creative with few of its design features – sharp ridges in the front, absence of door handles, and narrow camera sticks instead of the rearview mirrors.

Mightyseed Designs partnered with Waferchips to develop a device that can monitor the heart rate of a person and can be a better alternative to the Holter monitor which is currently being used in hospitals. The challenge was to create a device that is portable, sleek, harmless, and one that can easily withstand casual drops. Unlike the currently available device which does not have good portability and is costly, Biocalculus is a better alternative to it. The device requires to be attached to the body for a longer time for more accurate results. It has a USB port that can be connected to a smartphone and can be activated through an application. It is also capable of storing data on the cloud which can be retrieved and monitored later.

4. E Puttukutty
To make a traditional Kerala Puttu, the usual practice is to fill the PuttuKutti with a layered filling of the moist rice flour mix and grated coconut in a cylinder made of bamboo or metal. Mightyseed Designs as part of their in-house project have conceptualized a contemporary version of Puttukutty which acts as an up-gradation to the traditional one.
The bold new design uses instant vaporizer which converts water to vapor in less amount of time. It also comes with a bottle sized, easy to carry Puttu warmer that can be used to reheat precooked Puttu while one is traveling. The compact design of the product makes it easy to carry and use it anywhere. The company had displayed a prototype of the device in Kochi design week 2019.

Mightyseed Designs partnered with evelabs to create a device that regulates and monitors IV drips. Dripo detects real-time drop rates and can send alerts in case of rate variations, blockage, and completion to the nurse. The device helps in ensuring that there is zero error as improper administration of drips can lead to severe problems. The Wi-Fi-enabled one can provide real-time data at the nurse station which can then be used as a record for future reference.
