Egglike Double Axis Transport

The concept vehicle you are about to embark on a read and viewing of is the “Urban Vehicular Ovalon” aka UVO. This concept car for the futuristic year date of 2021 is what I’d call a pod car. Made for inner city commute by designer Alexei Mikhailov. The UVO sends you around the city in an oval form with two parallel axis, moving about using magnets tied with drive-link technology to either tie pods together for train-like transport or avoid other pods entirely. Not only will there be no congestion, traffic will cease to exist!

The vehicle features fuel cell technology using electric motors in each of the wheels. These motors are tied in with magnets which act as stabilizing gyroscopes in keeping the vehicle upright in both moving and braking.

Wireless energy transformers work with recharge parking hot-spots located all around the city. They recharge the vehicle using electromagnetic induction technology while you’re having yourself a coffee.

Then of course there’s the holographic head up display projection, completely wild new interactive interior for control of the car and a “new driving experience of 2021”, which probably means you’ll be able to watch Star Wars 7, 8, and 9 in there while you go to work. In addition to the auto controls of, for example that train situation I just mentioned, there’s also motion sensitive arm holsters – which would make for some very interesting races or demolition derbies in this future world, I must say.

Designer: Alexei Mikhailov

    Great renderings, awesome graphics, impecable presentation. The vehicle however is not appealing to me for it would most likely fail front end crash tests. This was designed for another planet with different safety standards than what we are used to.

    With the amount of "magnetting" that happens around these pods, pretty sure you don't need the hotspots to recharge, the electromagnetic-induction that happens at every move should charge everything all the time. The pods should just stop, and all of the other pods passing by will create the respective field. Or something.

    • quantum says:

      No, if the pods own movement generated enough energy to keep it moving it would be a perpetual motion machine which is impossible. If vehicles passing each other beamed each other energy, then each vehicle will drain some of its own energy to give to the other vehicles passing by and would quickly run out of power itself.

    The design won't get rid of traffic, it just has potential to switch the traffic from cars and trains to these pods and reduce the congestion of intercity transit. Traffic and congestion aren't the same thing, imagine a country side road, the road may not be congested, a car might pass on it once every hour, so there are no TRAFFIC JAMS/CONGESTION, but becasue cars are still traveling on the road, people are still using it for transportation there is still TRAFFIC. The only way there would be absolutely 100% no taffic would be if nobody used this transport system, as traffic just means people travel along the path or use the transport system, so it may have the potential to remove congestion, it won't remove traffic unless it sudenlly it made everyone stop traveling.

    Also i don't get the thing about the motors tied to magnets which act as gyroscopes, honestly, it seems like the designer is just stringing together words to make the idea sound ingenious, if what you mean is the rotation of the wheels keep the vehicle up right like a bycicle, then it won't stay upright while stationary, just like a bycicle falls over if it isn't moving unless you hold it up. If you mean something like a segway PT, there is a much simpler and less confusing way of saying so.

    That’s crazy! That would be our whole Police precinct plus half the Sheriffs dept right there. And just to sit there and waste gas? Unbelievable the aumnot of resources this guy burns campaigning. But California can just add it to their State credit card. Not like it’s maxed or anything .
