XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXX WINNER: Opel D49, by Augustin Barbot Opel D49 is a new breed of wheelless vehicle. It moves 10cm above the ground by electro- magnetic power or in the sea like a submarine. The three turbines, two at the front and one at the back, produce the energy to move forward. To lift up the vehicle, all components have been lightened and reduced to the minimum. The frame is made of aluminium and covered by a semi- flexible clear, waterproof resin. A glimpse into the future as students get the chance to design the vehicle of 2049
Flow concept, by Miika Heikkinen Flow concept is a zero- emission, single- seat vehicle that is designed to be used in city centres. Light patterns on long shutter speed images and the marine creature nautilus inspired the design. The vehicle works as a part of the infrastructure when not in use, by creating a place to rest. As everyday life becomes more and more hectic, the user can relax and enjoy the moment whilst travelling in the vehicle. Neuron, by Jong Won Lee Neuron is a wheelless, single- seat vehicle for drivers who want to enjoy racing in the desert. The concept can be controlled by a human's neuro-technology system. To drive Neuron, the user lies on the cockpit and can control movement by using driving skills motored by the brain. The aim is to achieve ideal harmony between vehicle and driver. Neuron uses regenerative energy from geothermal energy and anti- gravity power.
