Arya Boat by Marco Schembri

Arya boat is a conceptual luxury yacht tender designed with special attention to its aerodynamics. Most often than not, when designing a boat, we underestimate the importance of the impact of both water and air. In this concept boat design, the goal here is to minimize the impact at the optimum level while at the same time the boat features elegant lines and visually attractive appearance. The drawing was developed using CAD software Rhino and rendered using Vray on 3DStudio Max, unfortunately there’s no high level of details yet, hopefully when the designer has made the newer and more detail version, we can update this article. At this design phase, the orientation of this project is to pay attention to the performance of the lines and orientation of the volumes.

3D Printed Fractal LED Generator by Margot Krasojević

The light’s ceramic 3d printed shell is modeled using an ever decreasing repeated pattern, these fractal dimensions reserve self-similarity across scale, where at any magnification there is a smaller piece of the object only being restricted through it’s entire form. When air passes over it the light freely rotates picking up speed as a result of it’s weight,

Balance and pattern repetition. The movement rotates a motor which creates a current using a joule thief circuit to light up a cluster of LED’S. The light only uses wind power to generate this electricity, a capacitor allows the light to store up energy when there is no wind power to turn it. There are no batteries in the circuit only the electronics circuit shown below. The ceramic shell was designed using simulation software to test the aerodynamics and fluid dynamics of the form, materials and densities.

GIUSEPPE : The Next-Generation F1 Machine Concept For 2025

We just got design submission from Jaemin Park, GIUSEPPE concept racing car is the next-generation F1 machine for 2025. You can read the designer explanation about this concept car here:

This is the next-generation F1 machine design for the 2025 Mercedes AMG Petronas team. F1 racing is a sport in which the driver runs the car very fast up to 300 km/hour, I thought that machine’s stable posture is important during driving. Two independent flexible bodies are applied to this machine, instead of the front wing, and downforce is produced from the inside of the front wheel. It maximizes aerodynamics more than the existing F1 machine and has a wide overall width. Therefore, this machine has two independent front bodies which minimizes air resistance, by narrowing the width for extreme speed during high-speed driving, and maintains a stable position, by widening it again in a normal course.

Laminar 3 Concept Car by Daniel Fitzgerald

The Laminar 3 is the third iteration of a concept car that features adjustable aerodynamics to best suit the driving conditions. Providing better down-force when cornering, and better aerodynamic efficiency for freeway driving. Following feedback regarding the lack of a rear aerodynamic profile with Laminar 2 this new concept aims to address this through the incorporation of adjustable tapering rear end. Identical to the front wings characteristics the rear tapering end has a Low Drag profile that can when required dynamically rotate its angle of attack to provide down-force to the rear of a car.

Futuristic Nike One 2022 Racing Car by Phil Frank Design

Futuristic Nike One 2022 Racing Car has been designed for driving simulator Grand Turismo 4. Phil Frank, the principal of Phil Frank Design, LLC explained that Nike One 2022 boasts dramatic and futuristic technology of Nike One with its athletic focus, stretched surfaces and less-is-more philosophy, just like the principles from Bill Bowerman, Nike founder. Since Nike is an athletic company, this futuristic vehicle was designed and developed from that perspective, instead of building just another fast car, the design team took the inspiration and learned from the human body, its motion and dynamics.

“The wide and narrow track widths of the car for instance are directly inspired by a sprinter in the starting blocks” explains Asano, one of Phil Frank design team, “even the asymmetric tire profile comes from the human form”. “All these design elements are there for a functional performance reason” adds Frank, “right down to the dynamic motion control of the suspension”. The Nike ONE’s innovative suspension mimics tension in the muscles and takes advantage of the asymmetric tire profile to have extreme negative camber in a straight line for minimized rolling resistance on the motorcycle like section and then maximum positive camber when cornering or breaking.
