Zweistil is a bicycle prototype developed by Stefan Wallmann, a renowned German industrial designer, with the shape changing ability. This innovative bicycle will provide the rider with two riding options. First one is a compact shape for traveling around the city when you have to be more alert and aware of the busy traffic around you. The second option is for long distance rides when the rider can lay back with leisure and enjoy the views. The transformation process is simple. While driving, just pull the handle onwards and the paddles will be automatically placed for the relaxed ride. When you want to get back to the previous state, just push the handle and the back supporting seat outwards and you will be on your desired position.
The Honda Helix concept with advanced adaptive polymers can change its shape, color and even material properties when required. The three distinct conformations of Helix are A, B and Z. The car is short and wide when it is in “A” status for lighter and intertwining road system cities where the vehicle can run fast. “B” is low and long Helix for sprawling cities where long distances are allowed for high speed voyage. For congested cities, the tall and thin “Z” model comes in where occupants seat vertically on two levels. The use of flexible and renovating multi-functioning parts, this car can react to particular environments and traffic conditions by changing the orientation for optimal user functionality and environmental operation.
The Honda Helix is a vehicle capable of adapting, evolving, and conforming to user needs anywhere in the world. Using insight gained from the human genome, biotechnology, and environmental forecasting, the Honda Helix will actively and dynamically conform to the user’s needs, in environments ranging from the congested skies of Japan, to the wide open roads of America.

As technology progresses, consumers are coming into contact more and more with digital rather than analog products. However, digital products, such as computers and TVs, have a negative influence on such medical eye conditions as amblyopia.
The purpose of Eye Free is simple: it is a digital lens designed to help people with vision problems to look at a digital screen without needing their glasses. Normally, they would have to wear their glasses when watching digital screens like computers and TVs. This product has been designed to reduce the problem of eye fatigue when glasses are worn for too long a time.
