Echoes of a Nearby Future : Formula 1 Concept Car by Andries van Overbeeke

We just received a conceptual Formula 1 car from Andries van Overbeeke. It’s a realistic vision of F1 concept car that can be implemented in 2017, following new rules revolution talks. You can read his explanations below.

I made a realistic future Formula 1 concept that could be implemented in 2017, when there is a big rule change. The intention of these rules is to make the cars look more aggressive and attractive. A lot of prominent Formula 1 guys have been talking about wider cars and bigger rear wheels, however there have been no realistic concepts that explore the aesthetics of these rule changes. I decided to make some nice crisp 4K images.

Looks are very important in Formula 1, but the quality of racing often is determined by the laws of physics. The problem here is that F1 cars are very dependent on aerodynamics for their speed: a leading car disturbs the airflow for the car following close behind, causing ‘dirty air’, and makes it difficult to have close racing. Thinking about the implications of your design on physics and the racing is very important.

The intention here is to make the cars less sensitive to the negative effects of dirty air, and shift more towards mechanical grip.

HSP “Solar Skin” – A Futuristic Quantum Age Concept Airplane by Oscar Vinals

In his attempt to revolutionize air transportation, Oscar Viñals has come up with many futuristic transportation design such as XLDron, AWWA Sky Whale, or Flash Falcon. This time, he submitted his latest project to Tuvie, HSP “Solar Skin” – Quantum Age Airplane. In 1995, Boeing 777 became the first airplane, which entirely designed by computer. Quantum Age could be the next generation of airplanes, featuring radical external design, making it more aerodynamic for dramatic reduction in fuel consumption, noise, and emissions.

The design of this futuristic aircraft was based on fusion (mix) of the best technical and technological aspects of other concepts such as Blended Wing Body Design (BMW), Airlander, also some previous design of Oscar Viñals’ “Flash Falcon” and AWWA Sky Whale. HSP itself means Hyper Shape Plane, it’s Oscar way to describe this concept aircraft with its unique and personal form.

INBOX Digitize and Manage Paper Documents by Christoph Ptok and ENTWURFREICH

Who wouldn’t agree, that the increased use of digital media hasn’t contributed at all to a visible reduction in daily paper consumption? To the contrary, the increased use of personal computers and printers from the 1970s up to today’s heavy use of PCs, smartphones and tablets linked to printers has caused a sevenfold paper consumption. Take alone Germany, where during 2004 in the range of up to 800.000 tons of paper for administrative purposes were used. This piles up to a 16,000 km paper tower, assuming 80g/m² paper weight. Imagine, the international space station ISS would pass by such a paper tower at a base level of 400 km during its orbital journey.

When does the paperless era start?

In order to introduce the paperless era, we need first a simple and intuitive means to translate analog papers easily into digital formats. Current available solutions for digitizing are associated with a rather complex and painful experience for the user. As a result, handling of a physical folder is still more intuitive and faster than the user experience in current digital systems. Although, filing, storage and retrieval of paper documents within folders has proven to be effective, it has to be said, that this paper-based process does require an underlying process of discipline and self-structuring.

So, the problem is not the availability of fit-for-purpose technology, but rather the fact, that the needs of consumers are not fully understood. Traditional suppliers of products serving the transition of analog to digital document formats are looking first of all for stepwise incremental technological improvements. They neither question the general product concept nor do they focus on a basic redesign of the customer’s product handling experience.

Based on this assessment, industrial designer Christoph Ptok and Entwurfreich initiated a cooperation to explore, how an innovative process for digitizing and maintaining print media could look like.

How to simplify the process of digitizing?
How to support optimally the transition from analog to digital media?

Introducing : INBOX

INBOX is a concept for the 21st century impacting the transition from analog to digital universe. The combination of scanner, storage box and app-based interface enables a simple process of document management.

Felipe Campolina Designed A Skyscraper With Portable Housing

As the space in our cities disappears little by little, a young architect named Felipe Campolina, came up with a solution, which not only is beautiful it also minimizes the impact on nature. Felipe inspired himself from a movement in Japan postwar. In the 50s, there was a group of architects called Metabolist. They worked with prefabricated units. Having this noted down, Felipe started the design of a portable house unit. This was developed with a construction system that approaches both, environmental and social issues. The unit is made of standard OSB plate, thus defining flexible living areas that can be progressively coupled and adequate for transport. The unit is also equipped with windows in tempered glass, green roof and walls and a system that allows the reuse of water. Once the portable unit has been given it’s final touch, the creation of the skyscraper that will be composed of hundreds of these portable housing units was taking shape.
