The Bentley stroller trike is an innovative 6-1 model that was created in collaboration with Posh Baby and Kids.This limited-edition bike is from the Bentley centennial collection and there are only 570 units.

The Ferrari GT Cross concept integrates the company’s racing DNA with SUV-design

The Ferrari GT Cross isn’t just a large, red SUV with the raging-horse logo on its front. It isn’t a Lamborghini Urus or Maserati Levante-styled SUV that dilutes their respective brands’ DNA to build something more conservative. It’s every bit a Ferrari. Styled as a raised coupe in the spirit of a classic GT Ferrari, the Ferrari GT Cross concept from Jean-Louis Bui (you may remember his Citroen SUV concept from a couple of years back) stays every bit true to the evergreen Ferrari racecar. The SU...

The Polestar 1K is a self-driving robocar concept that really looks down upon human drivers!

Designer Fabian Breës took it upon himself to reinterpret the automobile company’s simple, almost architectural form language into something aggressively racy.The Polestar 1K is a racing car no doubt, but without a driver. Its Speed Racer-inspired aesthetic doesn’t include a cockpit, is developed entirely...

The Gruzovikus is an ‘intelligent’ freightliner truck that transports cargo without a driver

Without context, if you looked at the Gruzovikus, your first instinct would be to wonder why its cockpit is so slim. You’d then notice that the Gruzovikus has no doors… or windows. The Gruzovikus doesn’t need a driver, because it IS the driver. Designed by Art Lebedev Studio, this freight-carrying semi-truck comes with an incredibly slim profile, and is fully autonomous i.e., it doesn’t need a driver operating it, even remotely.The lack of a designer really informs the Gruzovikus’ design proce...

A trauma surgeon redesigned the age-old car-jack to make it much safer to use

The CrossJack’s birth has a remarkable story to it. Invented by James Flippin, a trauma surgeon, the CrossJack came as an instinct to make life better… a trait doctors and designers both share with equal passion. Flippin was a young surgeon, tending to a trauma case where a man was gravely injured after a car fell off its jack and onto him. Flippin had to eventually deliver tragic news to the man’s family, and given that it was his first time delivering news of this nature, it impacted him pro...

The X-Scooter LOM solves vehicular congestion by just making mobility smaller

In almost every other industry, progress is always followed by adoption. Vinyls were followed by Cassettes, which were then dethroned by CDs, MP3 files, and finally online streaming. Progress leads to adoption, leads to optimization, followed by evolution, and then more progress. It’s a healthy cycle that allows technology and innovation to constantly provide a better experience to its end-user. Somehow that growth-cycle hasn’t seemed to make its dent in the automotive industry. We’re still, a...

The Airbus MAVERIC aircraft’s unique design helps reduce drag while providing more cabin space

This blended-wing design, according to Airbus, significantly he...

If Tesla designed houses, this is what they would look like

I am an all-time architecture content consumer and nothing fascinates me more than seeing concept homes designed for the future! While we imagine it to be all Jetsons and some Avatar, designer Ivan Venkov has created a concept home that makes me curious – is this what homes would look like if Elon Musk was in charge?Venkov mentions that the original idea was for the modular aspect to only be included in the interior spaces, but the exterior sculptural look could also be shaped differently if des...

Layer Design’s Joyn ride-sharing concept lets you choose between private and public transportation

The great thing about public transport is that it’s cheap and eco-friendly. The not-so-great thing about it is the word ‘public’. Unless you’re with company, transportation is all about keeping to oneself, whether it’s listening to music, browsing the internet, playing a game, working, or catching some crucial shut-eye. LAYER Design’s Joyn brings privacy to public transportation, more popularly known today as ‘ride-sharing’. Pulling inspiration from airplane-style seating (an area LAYER has work...

Labrooy wedged the classic Volvo 240 into a quintessential cabin. The Volvo 240 was a vintage wonder, though long and slow, it was considered the ideal family car.

This retro-future 6-propeller racing drone is inspired by Ferrari’s F1 cars from the 50s

There isn’t really much to say about the Lazzarini FD-One that isn’t said in the title. Designed by Italy-based studio Lazzarini, the FD-One is a conceptual racing tricopter drone with 6 propellers, a V12 gas engine, and 3 battery packs. Featuring a cockpit big enough for two, the FD-One takes a lot of inspiration from Ferrari’s F1 and F2 racing cars in the 50s, with a very close resemblance to the tubular framed Ferrari 500 F2.The FD-One comes with three pairs of co-axial electric propellers po...

Harman is redesigning its in-car audio systems specifically for electric vehicles

I bet you didn’t know this but car stereos can often be power guzzlers. A decent car audio setup can pull anywhere from 200 to 500 watts RMS of power depending on the number of speaker units, the size of the car, and the bass module. That isn’t really much of a concern when you’ve got a fuel-powered automobile but in an electric vehicle, any sort of efficiency can go a long way in making a car perform better. Harman (which got acquired by Samsung in late 2016) is looking to redesign its audio ...

This uniquely colorful scooter comes with an ergonomic twist!

A bundle of fun and quirkiness meets personal transportation in Désormeaux/Carrette Studio’s creation, La Galoche, a feisty kick scooter. Crafted from aeronautical aluminum, La Galoche possesses a geometrically curvaceous form, slithering through the air, while occupying minimal space. If everyone were to hop on a La Galoche, traffic congestion would reduce considerably. Its colorful and cheerful aesthetics are reminiscent of a race car from the 60s or 70s, with a wide option of customizations a...

Bosch’s Virtual Sun Visor uses an LCD screen to cut the glare without cutting your view

Its animated-PowerPoint video editing aside, Bosch does make a pretty good point. We’ve innovated in every part of the car, except the sin visor. The visor, although designed with good intent, is often obstructive, as it reduces your visibility in its effort to shade your eyes. The fact that you can’t wear heavily tinted sun-glasses while driving (in most parts of the world) just further aggravates the matter because you’re faced with one of two issues when you’re driving with the sun shining ...

Sony just launched a self-driving electric car, and it may sound bizarre, but it makes absolute sense.

If you were previously wondering what carmaker logo that was… Sony stunned everyone today by announcing a concept electric vehicle! Sony’s definitely had a history of launching absolutely weird products from dancing egg-shaped speakers to robotic dogs… and at first glance, its concept sedan, the Vision S would seem like the perfect product to make it to that list, but the more and more I think about it, the more it makes sense. No, Sony isn’t entering the rapidly saturating EV market. The clue t...

With a 186 mile range (and a hub-less rear wheel), NAWA’s e-bike shows what innovation looks like

The NAWA e-bike’s a pretty interesting concept to talk about. Here’s what you need to know. This prototype exists as a one-off build. It’s created by a company that doesn’t make automobiles and doesn’t plan on selling this one-time prototype. Why would a company make a bike that it doesn’t intend on mass-producing or selling? Why, as a proof of concept. NAWA wants to bring attention to a crucial detail within the bike… its ultracapacitor, which can convert as much as 80-90% of the bike’s braking...

The EVE LUX’s “silver-surfer aesthetic” makes it a class-apart motorbike!

A combination of aerodynamics and futurism, with an overwhelming amount of chrome-finishing, the EVE LUX by Bandit9 is a bike that’s better enjoyed as a spectator than as a rider. Probably one of the most visually memorable bikes of the decade, especially when viewed from the side, the EVE LUX was designed exclusively for Hong Kong-based luxury house, Lane Crawford. Channeling a futuristic, feminine energy with its elegant sideways-teardrop design that seamlessly goes from tank to tail, the bike...
