Phoresy Pack : Design Your Backpack’s Shape, Volume, and Strapping Style

Phoresy Pack is a concept backpack that was born out of the idea of creating customizable and generative product design. It is based on the idea that objects around us leave a distinct mark reciprocally where user also contributes to the appearance as much as the initial designer. This concept bag represents the idea where a product can also be formed around its user.

It’s more than a backpack. Each product is unique, it is created by its user through a simple online interface wrapped around a generative design platform. There’s special app that offers control on the bag’s aesthetic parameter, including shape, volume, and strapping style. This means, each Phoresy Pack fits its user perfectly in term of function, style, and ergonomics.

Autonomous Passenger Drone Features Modular Design for Different Situations

This Autonomous Passenger Drone has been designed for the future where people can use personal aerial vehicles just like they use their cars today. The idea here is to combine the popular video drones with driverless solutions to create a new type of vehicle. The main field of use is transport inside highly populated cities. Besides that the autonomous system makes it possible to use it in situations where pilots couldn’t work. Like rescuing after a huge disaster, transport goods to dangerous places, research in unknown fields.

This futuristic concept drone features modular structure, the main part is the flying module, it can fly alone automatically, depending on the situations, it can also carry different kind of modules. The cabin can carry two passengers and a small luggage, it is practical for short distances as city transportation. It doesn’t need a pilot, the passenger can choose the destination in advance. The container is similar size as the cabin and useful in special situations when other type of transport is not possible. The other modules are the cameras or sensors, which are very helpful for researching hard-to-reach areas. This type of modularity helps to use one vehicle more practically, one drone to rule them all.

Formula 1 2017 Rules Concept Design with New Halo Closed Cockpit Concept

The Turkish car designer Olcay Tuncay Karabulut has this vision of a halo closed cockpit. You can read his explanations below.

I made this Formula 1 2017 concept race car to visualize what F1 cars could look like with a new halo closed cockpit. I prepare additional rules on the size of the 2017, also referring to the different structure of a new halo closed cockpit. I am sending F1 concept car draws its size. Closed cockpits have been on the agenda for some time now, and the FIA institute has already conducted substantial research in this area. This project was started largely in response to a pair of accidents where drivers were hit in the head by debris from other cars. The then Ferrari driver, Felipe Massa suffered very serious injury in 2009 after being hit by a suspension spring while Henry Surtees sadly lost his life when he was hit by a wheel and upright during an F2 race.

We’ve lost track of how many times we’ve heard that and how many rule changes we’ve been through to make it happen. That being said, 2017’s rules and the next year changes are admittedly radical, with cars to have more downforce than ever. One change that has been approved is for the tires to be slightly narrower than first proposed, because of concerns that the higher drag produced by the original concept offsetting all aerodynamic gains. So the idea now is for the tires to be 300 mm wide at the front and 400mm wide at the rear. Current tires are 245 mm wide at the front and 325mm wider at the rear.

Iceni H2 Hydrogen Fuel Cell Sports Car by Tom Johnson

Iceni H2 Hydrogen Fuel Cell Sports Car is a design submission from Tom Johnson, an architectural designer by profession, but a car lover at heart. Witnessing the slow demise of internal combustion engine, he started to design a concept for a sports car that uses commercially available fuel cell technology.

Inspired by his grandfather who was part of the research team that built the world’s first fuel cell car back in the late 1960s, Tom believes, the time has come where fuel cell cars or fuel cell sports cars are something common on the road. With Toyota’s free release of most of its fuel cell patents to the world, and Shell rolling out up to 400 hydrogen filling stations across Germany.

Orga Concept Cart by Milutin Rajić

Orga Cart was a college assignment where students were tasked to come up with shopping transportation design.

“Orga” is a concept shopping cart for customers to transport their purchased products inside a shop, especially in the supermarket. It will create problems for customers to go shopping without a shopping trolley that allows us to hold more than we can physically carry. This project was conceived in response to a college assignment on shopping transportation. Its goal was to minimize the weight carried by the user in a bag that is more compact than that of a shopping cart, but still provides a comfortable ride on urban terrain. The ergonomics and aesthetics was also an important aspect in the development of the project. The carrier can be used for transporting up to 30 kg (66 lbs) in bags of any material, and is made of a polished aluminum structure, polyurethane wheels and a leather-perforated polyethylene grips.

Range Rover Diamond Is A Design Study for Possible Future Range Rover Series

Range Rover Diamond Concept is a personal project from Manole Romulus, through some researches, he wanted to continue the same philosophy that is carried by all car generations of this auto manufacturer. You can read Manole’s explanations about this project below.

By analyzing the four generations, one can notice the continuous philosophy behind the construction of these vehicles. Through the graphical analysis for this purpose, one can observe the main elements this design is based on. The edges I have marked with 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, the angle of inclination for A and D pillars (to facilitate observation, for the first generation I marked the last pillar also with D), the consoles marked with Cf and Cs, as well as in the area of wheel passages decompose the main elements and the way they have maintained continuity.

Superloop Intersection for Self-Driving Cars by Atis Sedlenieks and Dārta Dambe

Superloop has been designed as part as competition project for Tallinn Architecture Biennale “Self-Driven City”. The project was awarded honorable mention.

This proposal is intended for time when autonomous cars will be 100% main city transportation. What will that mean for city streets and intersections?

Time is most valuable unit and humankind always are longed for doing most in less time. The goal to “travel to destination faster” is one of the main drive reasons for transport infrastructure evolution. Horses, bicycles, trains, cars, aircrafts etc. The efforts to reach this goal will guide the development of the technology and the city also in the times to come. Autonomous cars definitely will solve the more productive use of travel time itself, but this time after all won’t solve the base goal – “travel to destination faster”. Cities and roads that are adapted to autonomous cars can help to reach this goal.

As there will be no human error there will be no or very high speed limit. Today speed limit on city roads varies from 30- 50km/h. With only autonomous cars on roads speed limit could be 150km/h. If speed limit is that high, the only thing stopping cars are intersections. Autonomous cars have to slow down taking turn because of centrifugal forces acting on vehicle. Tires don’t have enough grip and car simply slips out of the turn or flips over. This is where superelevation comes in when designing roads.
Our proposal is aiming for intersection solution concept that is as fast as possible. Concept that can be adapted and used in every intersection no matter how much traffic lanes are intersecting. In that way there is no traffic jams and for the first time city can narrow car roads leaving more space for pedestrians and bicyclists.
