This Car is Lit Up

This car goes by the name “The Car of Light,” which, as I’m sure you’re about to see, means more than just a pretty shininess. This vehicle’s creation process began with a dissertation experienced by the designer on the effects of light on human’s senses and how it affects the shape of objects, especially vehicles. Heavy subject matter! And how elegant a car it doth create in the end.

In the process of creating this car, designer Jong Won Lee discussed with himself and others how interesting it is that humans, as a species, seem to adapt to industry development in how the light directs the eye. There is a visual wealth in light, he finds, and in this new age of low-power-usage with high-brightness, why not indulge? Light em up!

Now as far as this actual car design goes, down to brass tacks let’s start talking right now I’m saying, the lights are intuitive. There’s a solar panel / sun roof on top of the car that allows for natural light during the day and artificial light at night. The car is electric, of course, and the entire design is informed by the sun. How? Well! The interior and exterior of the vehicle are inspired by the rapping style of ancient Egypt’s mummy wrapping. This wrapping of the dead comes originally from the Sun God Ra, whom of course took quite a bit of his/her design sensibilities from the daylight hitting the world. Then there’s the wave feel of the vehicle, taken from the kinetic wave line of a river surface. Kind of a smooth sailor through the powerfully lit streets.

Pretty, yes?

    I actually like the interior of this vehicle (even though it is not throughly developed). I don’t like the Origami exterior….I’ve seen better. The light show this car performs is purely for attention starved status seekers.

    I would be ready to accept it if the designer does a 2 hours test-driving at night, for a month, in those wonderful rave colors…

    In our estimation, if you can see the benefits of pursuing
    public relations, there is no reason not to use the best law firm public relations firm
    out there. Back when I was 15 to 20 I tried every Summer to get
    the greatest suntan ever and I used to tell my buddy Darin White and
    I would one day write a book about how to get the best suntan.

    Self tanning products can be used at home, or one can take professional help by going to a salon. Third tip for removing self tanner is by using lemon juice mixed with
    kosher salt. Suede is less durable than other varieties of Buffalo Leather and is cheaper because many pieces
    of suede can be split from a single piece of the hide.

    s darkened, so be sure to be safe rather than sorry, and don. Now apply your basic lotion again, to
    the areas mentioned before. It is preferable to use a moisturizer that is meant for a sunless tanned skin.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Radely do I encfounter a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt,
    you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
