Futuristic Rally Explorer Concept Vehicle for Future Race Car in The Year of 2116

Rally Explorer is a conceptual futuristic vehicle for the year of 2116. It’s designed as a submission for “A Roadtrip in 2116” contest held by Allegorithmic. The idea here is to design a rally racing vehicle for a race that takes place on another planet where the racing track would stretch across the planet from west hemisphere to east hemisphere. Yes, that’s unimaginably long track, also there’s no stopping point in between, so no support or help is available, all racers would be totally on their own.

The track would include climb over snow mountains, pass through rainforests and desert, and other different harsh environments. These racers might also face unknown dangers while racing, that’s why the vehicle shouldn’t be just a means of transportation, it should also become a shelter during disasters or accidents.

Somerset Folding Bike Features Oval Shaped Frame for Convenient Carrying in Public Transportation

Somerset Folding Bike has been designed to amplify the convenience and comfort of transportation into our daily life, using industrial design point of view. In recent years, Taiwan’s government has been promoting the use of mass transportation as alternative to automobiles and motorcycles, public transportation will become the trend of the future yet there are still many people choose private high-fuel consumption transportation. One of the goals for this project aside from reducing carbon footprint, is to encourage people to use public transportation even though they carry a bike.

The innovative mechanism to fold makes this bike turning into a compact cart that can be easily carried in folded mode. Starting with many sketches, the designer thought about how to put a business bag on the bike, that’s why he used elements such as semicircle or circle to develop a series of concept folding bikes.

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.

RESeT Convertible Concept Car Is Inspired by Sailboat and Focuses on Volkswagen Design Philosophy

VW RESeT is Paulo Italiani’s master thesis that tells a story about an ecological convertible car concept aims to bring the passengers the luxury of the future by setting ourselves free from the “network”. This is the kind of freedom that can only be enjoyed by sailing a boat, feeling the sea breeze far away from the over connected urban centers.

The field of mobility and transportation is living a crucial moment after the economical and ecological crisis. Sooner or later the cars will come out with alternative fuel or electric engines. The driver experience will change dramatically, and the “vroom” effect from the combustion engine will vanish. It’s time to rethink the feelings that will replace the traditional driving pleasures.

Dodecaplex Space Ecosystem – “Revamp the Future”

Gazing into space has always generated interest and longing in humans desiring to learn about it, to know it, and with each day that passes, we are closer than ever to realizing interplanetary travel. However, the arrival to other solar systems has always been curtailed because of distances and current space motor technology, sustaining our desire to discover new frontiers anchored to our home planet.

The Dodecaplex Space Ecosystem is a project conceived to solve the current needs for space exploration, focusing on: avoiding dependency on Earth’s resources, adaptation to new technologies, and maintaining life. The Spacecraft will act as a future place of residence and method of transportation to other planetary systems. Various concepts are utilized in the creation of such a complex and sophisticated platform for space living and transportation. Applying membranes as functional units, separating spaces, protecting the Station from the exterior, we will maintain life.
