Our Designer Lucian won 3th place in the Local Motors Terra Prix contest. The challenge was to create a concept race car and a support ship for a race around the world that would be set in the year 2085. This entry uses advanced materials and technologies in a car that can move over almost any kind of terrain (it can drive, walk, jump and swim). The support ship uses hot air to generate lift and also propulsion, the balloon is moved by carbon nanotube artificial muscles so that it can “swim” through the air.
The images are part of a much larger project, the development for which would be too big to post here.
