Aside from allocating designated handicapped spots, not much has been done for handicapped people, transportation wise. The Audric changes that, and in a pretty massive way too. Designed as the first and only vehicle made for victims of paralysis, the Audric translates brain-signals into commands that operate the automobile. It also uses facial gestures and movements as cues for a more precise drive.
The cars exteriors are inspired by human muscles. Its organic, sinewy form complements its purpose, in a poetic sense. Adding functionality to visual poetry, the car’s doors have been re-positioned to the rear. This allows the driver to easily wheel in and out of the car. I wonder what would be the case if the car were parallel parked!
