Overcoming The Blind Spots While Driving

Overcoming The Blind Spots While Driving

Ever been a victim to blind spots while driving? The Full-Rear-View Windscreen Monitor aids in overcoming those spots so that you have a safer drive. The system consists of consists of two parts: a windscreen display and micro cameras installed on the car’s exterior. It uses the upper part of the windscreen to display a real-time image of the vehicle’s surroundings (as captured by the cameras). I think the option could prove to be a double-edged sword, because plenty of you driving veterans are sure gonna get distracted by the secondary display!

Car Shelves Galore

So you’ve got your bike-sharing situation in the city, do you? We’ve got one over here in Minneapolis, and it’s working great! Electric bikes for everyone! Mister Roberto Dei Lidi liked such an idea, but wanted to spread it on over to cars. Car sharing, you say? Not just any car sharing, electric car sharing! How would you do such a thing? With a tower of cars, of course.

Bike Folded Sharp as a Razor

Bike Folded Sharp as a Razor

There have been many folding bicycle concepts posts in the many years Yanko Design has been in business, and here’s another one. One bike might fold to a small size, one might fold in a way that allows you to wheel it around. This one folds down max, max, max. Take a look at all the previous posts with folding bike concepts in them and compare.

Imperial Flatboy Motorcycle

Imperial Flatboy Motorcycle

Star Wars influence? Inspiration taken from Daniel Simon? Yessir, indeed. This is a motorcycle concept going by the name “Bugatti startos” designed by Bruno Delussu. This name, Bugatti startos, means “Snake Road,” a fabulous name for a rather snake-like automotive. With a body made of fiberglass to make the entire thing light, setting the rider in the same place as a racing bike (lying on the bodywork,) and a cute traditional speedometer.

The Future's an Original Taxi Cab

The Future’s an Original Taxi Cab

It’s not often we get cars designed around here designed specifically to be a taxi cab. That’s what’s going on here in this Mercedes Benz branded Nimbus, designed by Slavche Tanevski. What makes this particular design special is that it’s sort of an official project, having been completed during an internship in Slavche Mercedes Exterior Design Studio, with the support of the exterior designer Michael Fry (Michael Frei) and chief designer of the exterior of Robert Forester (Robert Lesnik).

Super Hatchback in Space

Super Hatchback in Space

The following post is all about designer Jamie Martin’s design for the “Super Hatchback Concept” auto, but before the details are revealed, we have got to talk about the accompanying video (also included below.) Jamie Martin is what appears to me to be a master of presentation. He knows how to render 3D objects, he knows how to sketch and illustrate, he knows how to animate, and he’s pretty darn good at graphic design. This dude is the full package. Also he has a car to present to you.

Lever Drive Bike to the Rescue!

Lever Drive Bike to the Rescue!

This amazing machine goes by the name “Catapult” and is created by designer Tom Robbins, who, in an effort to improve the state of bikes made for the handicapped, went for the lever drive route. The inspiration for this bike came from seeing a particular person in the park attempting to operate one of those upside-down bicycles where the wheel-turning mechanism is turned by hand rather than by foot. In a moment of sheer brilliance, Tim Robbins turned to what ends up being a lot easier to operate: the lever drive.

Ride Those Bones

Ride Those Bones

The Bone Bicycle takes inspiration from the natural structure of a human bone, meaning light-weight yet strong. This cycle also exudes the same feeling of being naturally strong with an easy smooth ride and a light-weight frame. It comes at the right time of Halloween, when ghost, ghouls and skeletons keep knocking at your front door!

Windows of Protection

Windows of Protection

This is an automobile for the future of family transport and safety and it goes by the name “The Guardian.” Epic name! It’s automated enough that you need no license, there’s no age minimum, and you can be drunk as a sailor inside of it while it’s cruising down the road. Well that’s crazy!, you must be saying. It’s automated!, I say. I can’t help but think of the film Minority Report where the cars also all-but-drive themselves, allowing lots of freedom for speed but as you quickly realize, a lot of room for control by big brother.

A Strip of Car

A Strip of Car

A Mobius strip is a surface with “one continuous side formed by joining the ends of a rectangular strip after twisting one end through 180°” (Apple Dictionary.) It’s named after its discoverer August Ferdinand Möbius who basically found it super interesting because it was forever three dimensional. The vehicle you’re about to glance upon is the Mobius as well, this one designed by Tommaso Gecchelin who aims to merge aesthetic suggestions of both math and geometry into one harmonious shape.

Make Biodiesel Your Own

Make Biodiesel Your Own

Apparently this super fabulous fuel situation known as Biodiesel is the miracle source of energy. Designer Ben Guthrie informs us that Biodiesel “is a renewable resource, completely biodegradable, non-toxic, cheap to make, and ingredients are readily available, often for free as by-products of other processes.” What Guthrie would like to do, spread the love of Biodiesel, is a very noble thing, as Biodiesel is not (yet) a widespread process.

A Soft, Electric Lambo

A Soft, Electric Lambo

Designer Andrei Avarvarii has a vision for a smooth, voluptuous Lamborghini, the very opposite of the very sharp, origami-style of the Lamborghini Reventon. The challenge in creating this new Lamborghini “Minotauro” lies in not only staying within the strong identity system of the Lambo line, but also in making the vehicle electric! The challenge of course isn’t creating an electric car. We’ve had electric cars for years now. Nay! The challenge lies in convincing the consumer that not only is it cool to drive an electric car, it’s doubly cool to drive an electric supercar!
