Scion, Toyota’s youth brand, has launched its concept at the New York Auto Show, Hako Coupe concept. At first sight, this car might look like a classic car for you, but the inside is fully futuristic. Designed by Tokyo Design Division, this Hako Coupe Concept was inspired by the American vintage among young Tokyo trendsetters, it is intended to reflect “youth-inspired trends”. As Jack Hollis (Scion vice president) says “Scion�s Hako Coupe Concept embodies a distinct global perspective on today�s youth”.
“This type of forward thinking complements the Scion philosophy of intently listening to our customers and being willing to take risks to help us see where our brand should be. We took the xB�s iconic boxy shape and explored something more vivacious, yet just as emotionally appealing. This concept is the sporty version of a box.”
Inside, the Hako is accented with orange and metallic detailing that exudes a modern environment with entertainment possibilities. The front and rear seats are covered with urethane and rubber-like upholstery for easy cleaning.
The entertainment system consists of two video monitor screens mounted on the dash for radio, video, and music capabilities. Users can upload their videos and music through a Bluetooth connection.
The shifter looks like a joystick and a track-ball controls the entertainment. Blending vintage style and a gamer’s groove, the Hako Coupe stands out.
This convertible car designed by Italian IED (Istituto Europeo di Design) and inspired by the Fiat 124 Sport Spider from the 1970s. Webasto LigHT concept features lightweight soft top concept which made from new material mix and weight of just 13 kg. Under the motto ?The roof of the future?, the potential designers had the opportunity to unleash their fantasy and develop studies beyond the classic convertible body styles. Webasto will display LigHT concept car at Geneva Motor Show 2008.
OLTU Fridge utilizes the heat produced from the back of your fridge, wasted energy, and transforms it to cool the “totem” of vegetables and fruits through cooling by evaporation. These days we simply keep everything in the fridge simply by thinking all products we eat are stored in best way to last longer. When it comes to vegetables and fruits, fridge is not always your best option. How many times have you thrown rotting veggies/fruits away from your fridge?
The main goal of this project is to provide you with a method of the best way to store your fruits and vegetables properly as well as avoid wasting food, money, and energy. The heat from your fridge rises and affects the double wall of the clay containers, and with the help of water contained between the walls, these containers are able to reduce the temperature to create ideal atmosphere for your group of vegetables. Fridge is important to keep your meat, fish, and milk properly, but it’s not the same with vegetables and fruits, because they have different needs to be preserved fresh longer.
