More Than Meets the Eye

More Than Meets the Eye

At first glance, the Bimodal concept is seemingly predictable in a world full of far-out, ultra-aerodynamic conceptual supercars… but it’s got a secret under the hood that sets it apart, and we’re not talking engine tweaks. Dubbed the “ProGrip System,” the design features a hidden 5th wheel. Fit with its own sensors and electrohydraulic system, it provides greater traction in the straightway (also in wet weather), and enhanced cornering stability to prevent understeer and oversteer. Functional or superfluous? You be the judge. Either way, it’s a considerable innovation!

Balloon Bag For The Tails

Balloon Bag For The Tails

Car pileups can be disastrous and given the high speeds at which vehicles ply on the freeways, preventing secondary collisions can be tricky. The Air Bag Taillight is a safety balloon lamp that gets deployed as soon as the airbag of a crashed car blows up. The idea is to forewarn vehicles from a far, that an accident has taken place and to slow down their speed. On paper it’s a good idea, but I’m not sure if it will work very well. What do you think?

Meet the eBugatti

Meet the eBugatti

A winner of the Auto Design Prague: Talent of the Year Award, the Coupémotion concept follows in the footsteps of Bugatti’s “pur sang” design principle where lightness and modern aesthetics meet. To achieve this, it’s powered by 4 electric wheel hub engines which allow for both greater range as well as enhanced agility with each operating independently. As for styling, it harkens back to the original coupe where the passenger is fully enclosed while the driver is centered and partially covered.

The car is designed around the symbolic nature of the pearl, carrying precious cargo within its protective shell. Organic yet architectural, its curvaceous exterior is enhanced with a customizable digital display layer that can be changed on command to match the driver’s mood or style.

Every Car is a Stoplight

Every Car is a Stoplight

The addition of brake lights to vehicles & stoplights to intersections are two major life-saving standards, but still some problems exist when drivers are following large buses or trucks that block traffic signals. This design, simply called the Signal License Plate, combines the functionality of both to give heightened awareness to drivers approaching from behind. As an additional layer of safety, the plates work in tandem with signals to not only display the current red/yellow/green light, but count down to give drivers preparedness for changing conditions.

Saved By the Net

Saved By the Net

Net Rescue Boat is a lifeboat dredge with a net. The purpose of this re-design stems from the difficulties rescuers face while on missions using a regular lifeboat. The net area makes it easier to bring people to safety and commence first aid. Yep, in playtime we can also think of many party uses for the net area … but that’s just a wicked side of us!

Wheel to the Rescue

Wheel to the Rescue

The RollEvac military vehicle concept uses biomimicry to aid in time-sensitive rescue and evacuation operations in combat situations. Inspired by the golden wheel spider, which curls its body into a wheel shape and rolls down sand dunes as a method of escape, the RollEvac maneuvers in an upright position, rolling over terrain with spring-loaded legs for traction. Inside, passengers are balanced and protected by the armored exterior while being transported to safety.

Designed for researchers but equally appealing for nature lovers, photographers, adventure-seekers and more, its cabin interior sleeps 4-5 persons with additional room for cargo and tools as well as creature comforts like a dining table, kitchenette, bathroom, and shower. Its rough on the outside but soft on the inside!

Border Defending Ground Drone

Border Defending Ground Drone

This unmanned rover concept uses an arsenal of hi-tech systems to provide supplemental support to border patrol operations. At the center of the design is a border-facing shield that protects its vital armament, including lasers, radar, and other detection devices as well as military-grade lethal and non-lethal deterrents. Controlled remotely or set to operate autonomously, it safeguards territorial boundaries from illegal immigration or even enemy invasion while keeping domestic agents and officers out of harms way.
