Daedalus - a car which mimics a flower
A car design inspired by the way a flower reacts to its environment received The Royal College of Art’s Best Overall Concept Car award. Jonathan Putner, a student, designed a futuristic vehicle Daedalus with an interior optimized for social interaction between passengers.
All seats can be reclined and rotated in all directions, whereas its large glass roof made of ‘electrochromic’ panels, responds as a plant adjusting the interior to the sunlight intensity.
So far, Daedalus is only a computer animation, but since the leading designers are very interested in the car, we would not be too surprised if most of the presented design characteristics are to be applied on regular vehicles.
