The main inspiration of Comb Multifolding Wheelchair came from the limitation of space which will be unavoidable in the future. This concept wheelchair features innovative folding mechanism that enables its user to easily store when not in use or when traveling by car. This industrial designer plans to use ultra light yet very durable materials (such as aluminum, carbon fiber or titanium) to construct this wheelchair. If you take a look at its seat structure, you’ll understand where the “Comb” name came from.
Comb Multifolding Wheelchair design applies ground-breaking approaches which enables its user to fully adjust this wheelchair for ultimate comfort and convenience of sitting. It is possible to adjust almost everything, from front seat height, rear seat height, front caster angle, back rest angle, backrest height to foot rest length.

The Mercedes SL GTR is a concept study of a Mercedes Benz homologation special for the 21st century. Designed by Mark Hostler, this concept car aims to offer rider with purest expression of road car driving feel and performance. The design incorporates race car chassis technology, race suspension, carbon ceramic brakes, racing tires and a Nismo designed 5.5 liter v8 race engine from Nissan GTR GT1 race car. Cutting edge aerodynamics combined with sharp Mercedes Benz styling creates a car with an extreme, race car aesthetic and unique detail and style. The bodywork has been designed to look shrink wrapped around the mechanical components, taking out all unnecessary volume from the surfaces and exaggerating the cooling and induction intakes around the bodywork. Together with the details of the Mercedes Benz grille, large rear spoiler, 5 spoke magnesium wheels, and a classic teardrop shape racecar canopy, the Mercedes SL GTR is as close to a Le Mans racer a driver can get.
It is nice to see big auto manufacturers vision of future highway patrol, this time the concept comes from BMW Group DesignworksUSA, E-Patrol. It’s a human-drone pursuit vehicle for Los Angeles in 2025. Based on their research, they predicted that the street of LA would become more crowded with faster and eco-friendly vehicles, thus making a team of patrol officer is highly required to keep the safety of the highway. The design focuses on modular structure and drone technology to improve both teamwork and accessibility. The main structure of E-Patrol can deploy 3 drones, so in the case of a pursuit in heavy traffic areas, patrol officers sitting in 2-passenger main structure can deploy a flying drone or a single wheel drone to chase the suspect while reporting real-time data to the main structure.
