What do you get when an entertainment major join hands with leaders in home appliances, software and hardware combined with a high end builder? What you get is a house full with innovations like the one recently unveiled by Disney, the Innoventions Dream Home in Anaheim, Calif. It is located in a place called Tomorrowland, and it promises to be a house of the future or you can say marketing of the future, since the construction was a collaborative effort between Disneyland, Microsoft, HP, Life|ware and home-builder Taylor Morrison. With gadgets like magic mirror that allows you to see how you look in various clothes, kitchen that recognizes ingredients and a multimedia interface to tell stories to children, all we can say is welcome to the future!
Amphi-X is futuristic concept amphibious vehicle, designed for Dubai in 2030. This project was inspired by an article that Beichen Nan, the designer, read on the Top Gear magazine. It discussed about amphibious vehicle designs and how we could really use the alternative route of traveling instead of using busy congested roads especially in big cities. Based on this article, Amphi-X has been designed to answer the challenge on designing an amphibious vehicle that doesn’t have a large hull underneath its body or any water propeller sticking out from the back of the car. So, this futuristic transportation design blends a boat and a car into one aesthetically appealing amphibious vehicle.
Designer : Beichen Nan
The other thing that inspired this industrial designer would be the fact that many automotive manufacturers are trying hard to deliver compact and small vehicle while almost in all major cities there are virtually unused arterial waterways. So, instead of having to get stuck in the traffic, why not taking advantage the rivers or waterways and turn every journey into an enjoyable and pleasant cruise along the water with Amphi-X.
