I've been part of the Little Giant Ladders' family for many years beginning on the manufacturing floor. This past year, as a member of the Little Giant Innovations team, I was in charge of the creation of the Quantum articulating ladder.
The Oruga is an origami sleeping shell designed to be light weight, portable, and easy to use. Taking inspiration from the caterpillar, the Oruga was originally made to lessen the inconvenience of being stranded at the airport due to a cancelled or delayed flight. The main goals of this project were to provide comfort, security, and privacy.
