The new concept of walking stick

My design is a multi-functioned walking stick, the functions include easier to carry, soft handle GPS on the walking stick allowing family members to locate the elderly easily, foldable, and also provide space to put the carrier bags. Also the walking stick which can be folded into a very small object. Therefore, it is of much convenience for the users to put it anywhere without taking much space when not using it. It also gives users much confidence through folding it and putting it in a drawer or cabinet. the length of the walking stick is 80 centimeters, which is suitable for the users 140 to 180 centimeters high from the point view of ergonomics. The handle of walking stick is 8 centimeters long, with the largest width of 3.5 centimeters. My walking stick design is made by aluminum alloy this kind of material is very light and firmly stable.
