This vehicle features EV components in unique and innovative way that perhaps you’ve never seen before. The blue plate that you see at the front end is inductive charging, while at the rear end, you’ll find fast-charge plug. The battery itself is located at the center form of the car as part of aerodynamically sleek and polished body. If other concept cars hide control and drivetrain system, Valmet Dawn prefers to expose these components for display purposes in a way that easily understandable. It is hoped that through Valmet Dawn demonstration, there will be more exploration in developing fresh and modern concept of electric vehicle without sacrificing its performance and appearance.

Designed by Jakub Záhoř, this conceptual computer reflects a high end and innovative futurristic computer technology that enables the user to use it anywhere he finds a glass surface. According to the designer, you simply have to attach the device central unit to any glass surface e like a window or coffee table, switches on the power, and watches their system light up before their eyes. The display appears as an interactive hologram on the glass that the user merely has to touch to operate. It also makes for an easy, take-anywhere way to project photos and presentations or stream movies.
