The body of SOLENOPSIS was inspired by the body structure of an ant with modular external frames design, hence it allows quick repairs and guarantees safety to the drivers. The innovative structure of the tire came from heavy researches on fire ants ability to lock onto each other to form a complex waterproof structure. As the result, SOLENOPSIS Race Vehicle can transform from tire to track during the race, the nanostructure of the tracks can be connected and disconnected through magnetic field generators located on wheels.

Aside from SOLENOPSIS Race Vehicle, the designer has also designed additional future aircraft called ArGo (air-go). This aircraft has inflatable body that makes it light weight and efficient. Using similar modular approach as SOLEPNOSIS, the team living area of ArGo is separated from the main control. During the flight, several ArGo can be connected to save more energy, for example during the race, several ArGo from different teams can be connected to form a wind energy generator where the power can later be used for the race.
