BMW has launched the 328 Hommage concept, a design study concerned with a speedster, at the Villa d’Este. Taking its inspiration from the legendary 328 model, some of its awe-inspiring features include carbon-fiber body with asymmetric windscreen. The 328 Hommage holds the same layout. It is an exceptional 2-seater roadster having a front-mounted engine with a lightweight construction. The 328 Hommage BMW is unlike the 1930’s model in terms of its make, the usage of carbon fiber reinforced plastic. The exterior design boasts a surface treatment related to the one followed by BMW for its newest concepts, with its design incorporating an assortment of elements, which creates a visual tie to the original model. Thanks to the usage of materials as well as freely suspended elements including 2 iPhones included in the dashboard via special aluminum housing having a silhouette of classic stopwatches , that expresses a sense of lightness in terms of its interior structure. Clear-cut lines run across the sedan body’s taut surfaces. Overall, the 328 Hommage model is very awe-inspiring.
Flavio Adriani, the designer, created the Lamborghini Concept EV as a tribute to the man who changed everything about sportcars, Ferrucio Lamborghini. The design, the lines, the impact of the car derive from a beautiful, almost perfect combination of the Diablo and Gallardo. The concept is not just about passion for Lamborghini, it also is equipped with the latest technology regarding the drive train, pollution, energy saving and passenger safety. The car has an electric drive train, there are 4 electric engines in each of the 4 wheels. The energy this engine needs to operate is gathered with the solar panels placed over the engine compartment. These panels are V shaped, giving the car a more aggressive look, it’s like the whole car says: “Eat my dust!”. The designer also fitted a panel protecting passengers against low frequency radiation. This radiation comes from mobile phones, antennas and other wireless devices. These radiations have proven to be dangerous to human health bringing headaches, cancer and more.
For Flavio Adriani, the greatest challenge designing this electric Lamborghini was, how to bring the amazing sound of the engine that has been removed. The solution he found are wind turbines. The air enters the tubes through the front bumper and makes its way to the central turbine which gives it a jet engine sound. Imagine driving this staggering car in an ordinary city and every time you pass people by, they look up, trying to scout an airplane. That would be a beautiful feeling, driving a car with such an impressive history and passion within, that also sounds as an airplane.
Bring Pumpkin portable water filtration system when you go to camp or have any outdoor activities, it would become very handy when there’s no clean water around you. This tool uses a UV filtration system, charcoal filter, hydraulic pump combined with a digital engine. The internal battery can be charged using electricity or manually using its dynamo hand crank. We love the use of clear tubes to make it possible for the user to get easy access to deep and narrow places. Pumpkin transforms dirty water into drinkable one through coal and micro fiber filtration at the tip of the tube. It was inspired by Dyson products, instead of sucking dust and dirt, this tool sucks water and purifies it.
Designer : Samuel Bernier
Samuel says “Today’s hydraulic pumps use the same technology we had on world war two. Inspired by James Dyson’s inventions, I also wanted to radically change the use of a frustrating object such as the portable hydraulic pump. Pumpkin Portable Water Filtration System is light and flexible. It can purify water in places no other pump can reach. It is easy to store and is wireless. Pumpkin is the ultimate fruit to ad to your basket.”
