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).

Ognyan Bozhilov has submitted his latest personal vehicle design to Tuvie. It’s an electric personal vehicle for modern city with modular design to suit your mobility needs. You can read details explanation below.

The Tulip is not yet another electric vehicle. The way I see it’s a striving to change the idea of one’s personal mobility. I don’t think it’s enough to cope with the emissions from conventional vehicles. We have to address also the industry that is creating them and the consumer mind of modern people fueling this industry.

This is why I want to design not only a new type of vehicle, but a whole new model for the personal transportation. An object that evolves with you, something that you form an emotional connection with. Look at it as your home. You can’t buy home. You can buy a house and use it as a base to build upon. Model it and arrange it according to your taste and needs until gradually over time it becomes your home. I want to achieve this effect with a vehicle.

Bikes are a popular target for thieves, each year millions of bicycles are stolen in the world not because they are not locked, but because they are locked incorrectly. Making a bicycle secure is not simply attaching it with a lock to a bike rack, unfortunately most people realize that, only after they see their locked bicycle without the wheels or even without the frame.

Biclip is a bicycle lock that reminds the cyclist to lock both frame and wheels. This increases the security of bicycle by allowing the cyclist to lock the frame and the wheels separately but simultaneously and with only one lock.

SNO : Snow Bike Concept by Venn Industrial Design Consultancy

SNO is a design submission from Venn Industrial Design Consultancy, it’s a specially designed road bike snow. You can read their explanation below.

We had that fantastic opportunity to work with one of the ‘fanciest’ national bicycle brands and thanks to that, we have learned just a little about wheels. Learning is something and practicing it another, so we decided to came up with a humble conceptual design to express our way of ‘doing the ride thing’. As said, a humble conceptual design that touches a little to frame structure by using tensile elements, a little to power efficiency by messing with the transmission and a little to handling performance by increased contingence and weight distribution on double-butt. We love snow as much as we love to ride; it results “Sno”, for doing the ride thing!

Luna 3D Printed Bicycle by Omer Sagiv

The Luna bicycle has 3D printed nylon frame, front fork, and handle bar. All the other parts are off the shelf parts. The idea behind it is to utilize SLS technology wisely, whilst keeping a low production price (by using the “off the shelf” parts). It is printed on demand, so no stock required. Another advantage would be no investment in moulds, hence, having the possibility of making changes of form or material in the future, whether for specific requirements or according to the fast technological development of 3D printing.

Luna features a unique form that wisely uses the good specific strength and durability of nylon. The hexagon frame allows minimal surface area for a strong light structure.
