BMW Lovos Concept

Quote:
Anne Forschner, a design student at Germany's Pforzheim University, developed this wild-looking "Lovos" auto concept in collaboration with BMW.

The body of the car consists of 260 identical, interchangeable panels attached to the structure via hinges. Each panel, or "scale" (as in fish scale) can open or close, either to turn to face the sun and operate as a solar panel, or open to operate as an air brake.









Quote:
Twelve scales also enclose each wheel. As the car begins to move, the scales around the wheel pivot to collectively form the shape of a turbine, presumably for cooling.

I really like these concepts, but not in any way in terms of car design. I just appreciate the level of detail and the complexity of the object. I still like legit car designs more.

and to think we have people starving to death on the streets with no shelter or hope, yet somehow, we find the time to develope something as fu@king useless as THIS.

creative yes, waste of money, yes... we ever going to see this in production, no.
