Equestrian Inspired Trike

Equestrian Inspired Trike

The Saddle concept vehicle merges futuristic styling, modern power technology, & equestrian influence into a go-anywhere electric three wheeler designed to tackle the roughest terrain. Inspired by the mobility & connection to nature offered by horse riding, the drivers seating position is much like being on horseback. The trike’s 3 independently controlled swivel wheels are piloted by use of a hemispherical gyroscopic steering mechanism consisting of 3 adjustable discs controlled by the user’s fingers. Saddle up!

Bristol Car Concept, Handmade for a Clean Future

Bristol Car Concept, Handmade for a Clean Future

This Bristol car concept is a combination of piezoelectric and photovoltaic wizardry to create a platform that harvests energy from the surrounding environment, rewarding the consumer with the gift of free energy, that can then be used, shared or sold. A clean, powerful yet quintessential design, the vehicle looks like any other, but upon closer inspection you understand the potential of the concept.

Rolling Through Seoul

Rolling Through Seoul

Seoul is ranked the thirteenth largest economy in the world. The massive growth has created a metropolis with all too familiar problems – pollution. The Aiolos concept proposes a new system where buildings outfitted with wind generators pump power into a grid to charge these funky little cars. The cars have builtl-in propellers that capture wind energy. The faster you go, the more energy you generate. Talk about sub-compact!

Soft, Light and Wind Friendly Car

Soft, Light and Wind Friendly Car

VENTILE takes everything we know about cars and throws it out of the window. The powertrain starts off innocently enough being a gas/electric hybrid but there’s a third system – a giant fan. Air comes rushing in through the front, spins the fan situated beneath the battery and drives the car. How is this possible? The VENTILE barely weights 350 kg thanks to its translucent, soft shell and small rubberless wheels. I love when designers go out on a limb, far-fetched or not. I’d drive it!

Cutting Edge Electric Concept

Cutting Edge Electric Concept

The Zeleritas electric racing concept by designer Willie Tay combines current & future driving technologies with hard styling into a single passenger roadster with a straight-from-the-track feel. A monocoque carbon fiber body, retractable glass hard top, & exposed wheels give it an Indy car edge while modern features like the HUD active matrix windscreen, paramagnetic body paint, & discreet integrated lights enhance both the visual and driving experiences. One of the most attractive racing designs I’ve seen since the Ford Indigo.

One Go-Kart 2 Go Please

One Go-Kart 2 Go Please

Launch of a whole new electric go kart that can fold up and fit in the back of your car. Designed and engineered to look and feel like a formula one car, this go-kart only weighs 65 pounds. The entire chassis and body work are made from carbon fiber, and lightweight lithium batteries power this racer to a top speed of 60 mph. The chassis is designed to fold up into a package of only 30” x 30” x 15,” this is achieved by quick disconnects of the rims and steering wheel and folding the chassis in half. DO WANT!

RX Re-envisioned

RX Re-envisioned

The RXFE electric concept represents how a modern successor to the iconic rotary powered RX7 might take form. Four hub mounted electric motors work in tandem with the rotary engine forming a hybrid power drive. The RXFE’s facelift emphasizes hard lines and masculine detail but maintains the low profile of the two door 90s icon.

Simplicity and Style Meet in Gorgeous Bicycle

Simplicity and Style Meet in Gorgeous Bicycle

DV01 is a bicycle concept for people who want a bike to be a convenient means of transportation and a product with high aesthetic value. For many people a bicycle is a place to express personal style. It’s also a product that consists of many different components and parts, which all affect the overall impression. The focus of the project has been about finding a balance between those components. When form and function interact in a successful symbiosis, the product may last longer and loved by more people. Beautiful work David!

Finnish Auto

Finnish Auto

In Nordic countries, the need for transportation is simple but demanding. The driving distances vary from long to short and the seasons vary greatly. The vehicle should be as comfortable as a luxury sedan but also as compact as a hatchback, offering an ecological option with enough space for a medium sized family. Tah da! The Michelin Active Wheel concept – Maininki.

Emotions of My Cycle

Emotions of My Cycle

Like it or not, social networking and emotional status updates have become an integral part of our cyber life. We keep looking for new avenues to express our “emoticons” in the real-world and the Bike Light is one such way. Milled out from one solid piece of aluminum, it encloses an 8×8 LED dot matrix light setup. You can download personalized graphics, animations or phrases to use as the rear light. Why? So that you can let strangers on the road know that you are sad, happy or flirty!

The Future of Vespa?

The Future of Vespa?

The monocoque body of designer Niklas Wagner’s Vespa concept combines the classic curves of the “twist & go” scooter with modern minimalism, creating a futuristic look and feel that also gives a nod to its origins. The instrument cluster has also been revamped in a recessed LED display but reflects the simplicity of the classic chrome and transparent plastic style on the original dash.
