The demands for environmental sustainability are getting higher and higher, so it's no surprise that technicians from all over the world are working to make cars stop killing the earth. Better yet, for cars to beautify it. So far, of course, this phenomenon is not so widespread, but who knows, maybe ideas from these cars, created in 2007, will be used in the future?
The MIT City Car is a brilliant city car concept that combines the convenience and mobility of a shopping cart or airport cart. His idea is to accommodate all the best from public, personal and public transport in a very reliable and convenient system. It is not designed for long trips, but it will be a great solution for short trips from home to the train.
Created by Harsha Ravi, the Globaltrotter is an extremely light plastic car packed with a full range of environmental innovations. It needs very little energy to operate, and most of it is generated by solar energy. A creative approach to solving the environmental problem allowed the inclusion of a nano-paper battery and special paint that accumulates solar energy, airless wheels and an organic car body that can then be easily disposed of. For his design, Harsha Ravvi received the Australian Young Designer of the Year award for innovation, extraordinary design, visual impact and form, functionality, quality, ergonomics, semantics, safety and environmental concern.
The Parking Day project started with a small temporary public park built in a parking lot a few years ago. Since then, it has grown into a global and annual event in which people create green spaces on the streets for everyone. Above, you can see the Parkcycle, the product of Parking Day's collaboration with artist Reuben Margolin, which emphasizes the mobile and fluid nature of public parks. It can be moved from place to place to those places where landscaping is needed urgently and immediately.
The Mechabolic project is a large-scale hydrocarbon-based bio-simulator that shows the process of fuel production, processing and consumption. In short, before the eyes of enthusiastic onlookers and literally and figuratively, the process of obtaining fuel, presented at the Burning Man exhibition, goes through. The resulting and converted fuel is fed back to the machine so that it can continue its work. The meaning of this setting is not clear, but the clarity is impressive.
At the first glance at this photo, you might think that someone has laid out pictures from a 3D modeling program, leaving only the frame, but no - this is indeed the real car of Benedict Radcliffe. Moreover, there are no digital and standard car gadgets in the car at all. We hope that the creator does not have to pay parking fines, since in essence it is not a car either. Its entire engine is a pedal system, which Benedict's friend Ben Wilson helped screw to the car. This is probably the most environmentally friendly car that drives on the earth today.
