It’s always cool to see what designers think will be the vehicles of the future.
The Float is maglev concept vehicle where in the future, this could be the way to travel.
Tuna Yenici placed with his Vue vehicle and Yunchen Cai had a vehicle called The Float using Maglev tech rather than wheels. Cai and The Float won the contest and spent two weeks at the Renault design studios in Paris during the summer.
The Float offers a new way to connect with people through tessellation. It connects you with outside world through application of large swathes of glass. Thanks to the geometry of the design, numbers of pods can be attached via a magnetic belt, in this way, more than two people can travel together. Passengers can control their seat position, rotate it to different angle. There’s a special sound system that allows passengers to speak with other passengers in other pods.
Renault gives some details on each of the concept. The Flo with the three different sized vehicles has one for freight transport, on for personal transport, and one for shared transport. It’s seen as a bus or taxi of the future. Tuna Yenici created Vue concept inspired by the relationship between owners and pets.
