Designed by Tilmann Schlootz, German designer, this Snook concept is original and agile personal mobility vehicle that rides on a sphere.

Tilmann Schlootz describes his project: “The Magic Egg of Columbus, or better, two billard balls standing on each other: this icon is my origin on the way of reducing the hardware demands of physical mobility to the minimum.

One point touching the ground, the inverse pendulum in motion. Agility through instability, controlled by artificial intelligence – that is my formal issue.”

The concept model and designer Tilmann Schlootz will be present at the “Hannover Fair” (21-25 April 2008).

  5. It is a very well thoguth through concept and I really love it. I would never have thought of the comb-like seats. Well done. Very artistic.

  6. Where are the air bags, seat belts and other safety features?

    I’ll believe this is a viable concept when I see one win a road race against conventional four-wheeled sports cars. No, I am not holding my breath. Interesting idea but without genuine practicality.

    • Pal this is something called a prototype, i think somebody will probably put a seat belt in there before any are sold.

  7. An automobile, autocar, motor car or car is a wheeled motor vehicle used for transporting passengers, which also carries its own engine or motor. Most definitions of the term specify that automobiles are designed to run primarily on roads, to have seating for one to eight people, to typically have four wheels, and to be constructed principally for the transport of people rather than goods.

    The term motorcar has also been used in the context of electrified rail systems to denote a car which functions as a small locomotive but also provides space for passengers and baggage. These locomotive cars were often used on suburban routes by both interurban and intercity railroad systems.

    It was estimated in 2010 that the number of automobiles had risen to over 1 billion vehicles, up from the 500 million of 1986. The numbers are increasing rapidly, especially in China and India.
