Alpha Concept Car : Single Seater Vehicle with Wooden Chassis

Alpha is a concept car that creates a link between a regular car and a lighter vehicle such as bicycle or a motorcycle. Due to its compact size (3000 mm length,1500 mm width, and 900 mm high ) this electrically powered single-seater vehicle would be ideal for a dynamic young population living in continuously growing cities of the future. The uniqueness of this car lies in its wooden chassis. Designed by Rustam Schogenoff, you can read his explanations about this futuristic car below.

The idea here is to replace all the complex and heavy engineering components of a vehicle by technical properties of the natural materials. One of these materials is wood. This simple material has a number of excellent building physics properties. The main ones are: strength, hardness, lightweight, elasticity, toughness, decay-resistance, and strength. It aims to smartly installed wooden limbs so that it could replace conventional chassis with complex elements such as suspensions, axles and dampers. The construction would even already incorporate all the functions of those elements. The number of technical devices used in a vehicle would be reduced, which would automatically reduce the total weight, energy consumption, the ejected gases, the energy in the production and of course the price).

Oakley Personal Gear Vehicle Interior Design Study for 2024

Submitted by Hyukwoo Kwon, this project is about a modern interior for personal vehicle. It’s been designed based on the idea what if Oakley designed for transportation, how would it turn out to be and what would be the outcome in the future?

This project is about how it would be if the car can wear the gear just like a person with backpack, glasses, or other accessories. Car interior is an environment made by many different products. How it looks if one person vehicle has replaceable function such as Oakley eyewear sunglasses. It is not only for the engine and steering wheel, but also the wheels and the backseat can be part of the gear for a particular function and customized style regardless of the terrain.

Oakley is a brand well known for its sports eyewear products. Beginning with the motorcycle anti-slip handle, Oakley has been growing up worldwide as comprehensive sporting gear company. It’s now not only known for fashion sunglasses or sports goggles, but also for clothing, backpack, shoes, watch, etc. Why Oakley? With the advent of 3D printing technology, product companies became better suited to incorporating more complex designs. This with Oakley brand’s design language, made it possible to envision the future story of the progression in the design industry. Above all, I chose Oakley to emphasize Oakley’s image of developing sports goggles, watch, boots all of which contained the sporty and protective design elements that aligned well with transportation interior design.

Hephaestus Motorcycle by Bandit9

Hephaestus is the latest creation by Daryl Villanueva and his band of pirates at Beijing-based garage, Bandit9. They named the bike, Hephaestus, in honor of the Greek God of blacksmiths, craftsmen, sculptors and artisans.

An evolution of the 1988 Honda Bros 400, Bandit9 shed the bike’s original plastic exterior and refitted it with a more modern aesthetic; sporting an armor-like exoskeleton forged from steel. There’s nothing soft about the bike, except for maybe hand stitched black leather seat. The tank, gas cap, cowl, side covers and fender were all handcrafted from stainless steel.

The tank was designed to have a mid-line bevel that carries through to the cowl and the fender. The side-covers with a dotted grill pattern were crafted from sheet metal. The handlebars were replaced with clip-ons designed by Bandit9. The rear lights function both as turn signals and brakes. When you signal to turn, the corresponding light flashes. However, both rear lights flash red when you hit the brakes.

KruzoR Motorcycle by Chris Stiles

KruzoR Motorcycle is a high powered cruiser, designed for highway sportsbike mayhem on a hybrid of race bike and cruiser. The positioning of the handlebars, footrests and seating position allow the user to be in a position similar to that if you are on a sportsbike, however the arms will be more outstretched. Positioning the seat much lower and at a friendly angle to the tank will allow the rider to rest against the back of the tank.

With hubless wheels and minimal side profile, the KruzoR Motorcycle will handle highway driving crosswinds better than any predecessors before it. The hubless wheels work by fixing the rotating parts of the wheel (bearings etc) onto the outer side of a non-rotating inner ring that attaches to the motorcycle’s swingarm or forks. The footrests are positioned at angle that allow the foot to be rested flat on a surface, differing from the common pegs used extensively on bikes built currently and in the past.
