The Car That Hangs Outta Your Window

Picture this: you walk into this hub hanging outta your high-rise apartment and then it gently glides down to the ground level. Touch ground and it transforms into this ultimate car that looks and feels SEXY! This IS the Peugeot Metromorph and it transports you thru the city with ease. I dunno about your hometown, but where I live, I got to pay premium rent for parking my car in my apartment building. This kinda concept looks at eliminating parking woes. Hit the jump to see how this beauty soars.

There are some specific features that have been attributed to the Metromorph, to make it a viable concept:

Drivetrain- the vehicle is powered by two in wheel motors placed in the back. There are two battery cases on the back as well.

Interior- the seats are held by rotating arms which keep the seat level when the vehicle goes vertical or horizontal. When the vehicle is a balcony the seats are placed on a rolling base which enables them to become lounge chairs thus freeing up the interior of the car to make it a balcony. The interior is also left fairly hollow to accommodate the balcony mode.

Exterior- the car is designed to not look like a car vertically mounted to a building and still look like a vehicle when it’s on the road. So the wheels are concealed toward the inside. Rather than go vertically like many scissor doors today Metromorphs’ arms rotate closely around the vehicle allowing the doors to freely open in a cramped area like a garage.

A Car Elevator!

  • christian says:

    I don’t want to be negative but this is exactly what they used in Minorty report ‘the film’

    • thomas says:

      pretty sure the lexus from minority report didnt sit outside the building, functioning as a balcony…

  • indeed a nice design but i didnt like the doors style,and feel it may not be good at safety features too,but still its cool and better then minority report idea

    • eX.A.K.R. says:

      Very similar, yes, but the version in Minority Report is a magnetic levitation system – more akin to a PRT system – while this one is more like a system for sticking cars that could go anywhere onto the sides of apartment buildings when they are not in use.

      Granted, as a practicalist, while the idea is quite nifty there are indeed some safety issues that need to be worked out. For example, what if the mechanisms that keep the car’s passengers level fails?

      Still, this is a rather good idea and it could be interesting if someone works this into reality.

  • cool, though I though i saw this in I robot, and countless anime

    Minority Report film…..

  • humza khan says:

    Cool, and yes they are influences from minority report. I don’t think that neccesarily takes away from it. Besides, a lot of conceptual design in films has a huge influence on modern industrial design. If it were me, I might work on the design of the horizontal profile of the car a bit more, since it seems to feel more aesthetically pleasing in the vertical position.

  • K-Funky says:

    yup minority report ) But i like this…

  • karl says:

    that’s some pretty damn good student work though.

  • Mayank Sunny says:

    whts its cost????

  • Bren says:

    woah. reeeal cool.

    hope they make this into reality. cool concept.

  • Nick says:

    like it but expensive in full the buildings would need to be built with the same design. great idea if there was only 1 car being used by everyone. but i live in the country with no high rise apartment buildings and even though the concept, idea, and real world applications are great, i see a fault. what if they need more than one vehicle and theres only 1 room for a car. and if ambulances are made with this same design it would be a great application and at the same time only 1 car could fit.
