Mini Transformer

Mini Transformer

The age of super-compacts is in full swing, but with that smaller wheelbase comes compromise in stability. MONO is a transformable EV that adapts its stance to maximize the driving experience whether you’re in the city or on the open road. The vehicle automatically adjusts the wheelbase depending on road type, traffic, or speed to ensure stability and practicality no matter the driving conditions. In its compact form the EV is only slightly larger than a motorcycle, making it perfect for zipping around the city.

The Ultimate Citi Bike

The Ultimate Citi Bike

This is the future and the city’s business district frowns upon those who bring their cars to work. The alternate arrangement is to leave your car at a distant parking lot and cycle your way to work. Why? Overpopulation has taken its toll on the city and this is a plausible solution. In comes the Ford Citi Bike, one that is designed for easy mounting and holding gadgets like laptops and iPad.

Predator of the Road

Predator of the Road

Considering that they’re the world’s fastest land mammal (and just plain cool), it’s surprising there aren’t more transportation designs inspired by the cheetah. Designer Balázs Filczer’s 2-seater V12 Cheetah-R concept is designed around the animal’s anatomical features which are completely built for speed: muscles, prominent spine, and robust stance. Like the fast cat- it’s lean, and mean, and looks like it’s in a constant state of muscle flexing!

Laser GPS In Broad Daylight

Laser GPS In Broad Daylight

The Open Sight is a navigational aid for bicycles that imbibes a safer approach towards riding than traditional gadgets. The case point made by the designer is that we tend to get distracted while trying to find our way using a GPS Navigator. Hence accidents happen; to avoid this situation, the Open Sight GPS beams out powerful directional laser arrows that are visible even during the day. So basically you end up concentrating on your path rather than consulting the GPS interface for directions.

City-Ready Citroen

City-Ready Citroen

The Citroen DS BiRotor merges the aesthetic attention to detail of top-end brands with the efficiency & economic sensibility of modern hybrid-drive vehicles. Laser headlights, AMOLED driver interface, carbon fiber everywhere, & a photosensitive polycarbonate roof/windows are just a few of the pros… but what sets it apart are the innovative tires which adapt to weather & driver demands by expanding & contracting to allow for water flow, increased traction, or higher efficiency. Hit the jump to see how it works!

Sexy City-Pod

Sexy City-Pod

The single-axle Honda type E concept uses similar physical principles as a segway for maximum maneuverability in the urban jungle. The ultrasmall vehicle focuses on minimum space consumption, maximum driver visibility, easy access, high efficiency, and, most importantly, driving dynamics that make it capable of turning 360 on the spot. It’s got a far-out aesthetic, but it’s really not all that unrealistic from what we’ll probably see not-so-distant future.

Speed Limit Capped

Speed Limit Capped

The Speed Guard is a speedometer alert that uses a colored display to let the driver know that he is speeding above the permitted speed limit. GPS readings detect the position of the car and the speed limit of that particular road. So even if you see the signboard, your car knows the speed limit; no escaping that!

Kick Stand And Lock!

Kick Stand And Lock!

Yup, that’s what you’ve literally got to do to lock your cycle, when you are using the Quick Stand & Lock, locking system. The locking system is integrated into the stand in such a way that all you need to do is park your bike, and as you kick it’s stand down, the number lock just gets into action. The clever thing even cuts you the step of actually chining up your cycle. Pretty clever if you ask me!

The Foolproof Lock

The Foolproof Lock

My bike got stolen! Been there, done that; so the focus has to be on how do we stop these bicycle thieves from getting creative at picking locks? Simple, let’s make it a foolproof locking system. Which is why the Saddle Lock looks to be a superb solution. You can quickly lock the bike by pushing back the seat into the locking position and make a quick stop to get your coffee.

Ultra-Compact Car Share

Ultra-Compact Car Share

The Citi.Transmitter is a versatile urban-transportation concept that expands on the shared-vehicle solution by offering a mix of eco-friendly modular units for a variety of needs. Using an innovative smart-hitch system, users can easily attach modules to the primary 2-wheeled car to carry more passengers or cargo. About a 4th of the size of standard cars, the ultra-compact vehicle makes getting around heavily congested cities a cinch!

Colored Tiers Are Safer

Colored Tiers Are Safer

The Discolor Tyre is a concept where the age and durability of the car tire is indicated and communicated through its color. Basically a tire is good for around 20,000 kilometers, and then its kinds worn out. With the Discolor Tyre, the tire takes on a bright orange hue once it is worn out and requires immediate replacement. It saves you the trouble of keeping a constant check and acts as a good warning system to keep your travels safe.

Mercedes Makeover

Mercedes Makeover

This award-winning project by Oliver Elst applies the theme of reduction to the aesthetics and structure of this Mercedes concept, in the process creating an entirely new material and light-weight technology. The “sandwiched” material visible throughout the vehicle would consist of 3 layers- 2 for interior and exterior protection and an inner reactive filling that is used for temperature and lighting adjustment. The resulting aesthetic is an organic skin-like shell synthesized into a classic metal framework.
