Symbiosis: Light Technologies from Nature

The Biome:

The Mercedes-Benz Biome is an ultralight vehicle that utilizes technologies from nature to achieve unparalleled efficiency and seamless integration into the ecosystem.

Mercedes-Benz Symbiosis:

Mercedes-Benz Symbiosis is a gadget wherein the car becomes part of the surroundings just like the leaves of a tree. Symbiosis vehicles gather power from the solar and save it in chemical bonds, inside the shape of a fluid known as BioNectar4534. Mercedes has also evolved era to retrofit trees with receptors which could harvest their extra sun strength into BN4534. This creates an incentive to plant more timber and accumulate extra energy, whilst additionally helping the surroundings. The car may be composted after its lifespan is whole or used as constructing fabric.

Partnership With Nature:

The Symbiosis car paperwork a continuing part of the ecosystem thru inexperienced technology. Most of the electricity used to energy the motors comes from the solar. It is saved in a lightweight grown cloth called BioFibre. It is a lot lighter than metallic or synthetic composites, however more potent than metal when mature. It is grown inside the Mercedes-Benz Nursery thru proprietary DNA. The purchaser's specific goals are genetically engineered into the Star and the vehicle grows whilst this combines with the Seed tablet.

Mercedes-Benz Nursery:

All Mercedes-Benz Symbiosis motors are grown in an ecologically sustainable nursery, the use of frequently organic materials.

Growth from Two Seeds:

The interior of the Biome grows from Mercedes-Benz DNA inside the the front famous person, when it fuses with the seed. The outdoors grows from the rear star, creating the shape. The wheels are grown separately from four unique seeds.

Technologies from Nature:

Mercedes Benz Symbiosis cars launch pure oxygen into the environment, assisting urban regions to satisfy air first-class requirements.


_____________________________NISSAN iV_____________________________

Nissan iV

In 2010, the revolutionary Nissan LEAF is delivered because the first mass-market electric automobile (EV), planting seeds for Nissan's vision of a 0-emissions destiny. Fast-forward to 2035: EVs and the green power infrastructures that energy them have matured into a fully sustainable device, bringing this dream to lifestyles.


Infused with Nissan's heritage of sports and performance, Nissan iV is a high-performance EV inspired by nature's intelligent beauty and crafted by human ingenuity. The iV is a super-lightweight sports tourer that showcases "organic synthetics," a revolutionary manufacturing technique in which automotive parts are cultivated like agriculture in a 100% sustainable, carbon-neutral process.


Less is more. Every detail of the Nissan iV is engineered toward renewable, lightweight strength and maximum efficiency. Featuring an interwoven organic frame, iV's chassis material is synthetically grown and formed into a stunning, aerodynamic shape. Derived from fast-growing ivy and re-enforced with spider silk composite, the biopolymer frame is flexible and ultra-light, yet extremely robust. The spacious, panoramic cabin comfortably seats four adults and is constructed from an innovative photovoltaic material that weighs 99% less than traditional glass. While the canopy collects solar energy, it also provides protective safety and unique, open-air views of the outdoors. Underneath it all, a slim bio-battery provides stability and a near limit-less range made possible by regenerative super-capacitor technology that recoups 60% of kinetic energy spent.


Nissan's patented concentric hub-less in-wheel motors not only propel iV, they do triple-duty by functioning as the vehicle's steering as well as its suspension system, via magnetic levitation and propulsion. Concentric magnetic rings amplify rotation with each outer ring to boost high-speed performance and provide independent wheel control for ultimate handling and maneuverability. Inspired by schools of fish and their fluid movement, Nissan's pro-active Safety Shield™ renders collisions a thing of the past and reduces weight by eliminating the need for heavy structures (bumpers, beams, airbags, etc.).


Through industry-leading technology, Nissan iV maximizes the driving experience by eliminating excess. Nissan fulfills a deep nostalgia for the joy of driving with a strikingly beautiful EV that can deliver electrifying, agile performance with zero-guilt.

Our mantra: Innovation For All.


___________________________SMART 454 WWT__________________________

Smart 454 WWT

The Smart 454 via Weight Watch Technologies from Germany.

(454kg is set 1000lb)

West coast a laugh and innovation meets German technology, layout and grannies' hand knit socks.

Manufactured by incredibly high-tech robots that look as friendly and cuddly as our grandmothers, the Tridion-frame (chassis) is knit by our "Smart Granny Robots" (otherwise know as SGRs) out of carbon fibre. The knitting can create complex shapes and forms, enabling the geometry to be optimized in strength and weight.

We use one-of-a-kind substances for every individual part to present every piece of the car its own unique residences and look. Each element is synthetic with the exact cloth vital for an highest quality stability between weight and function. Windows, fenders and bumpers are all made from recyclable plastics with ingrained colorations. The roof is a skinny, however particularly long lasting recycled textile that comes with distinctive prints and weavings.

Construction of the WWT carbon fibre wheels with integrated suspension are very lightweight and make it also impossible to run a flat tire. Our unique SGR technology allows for truly unique looking rims and the best lightweight technology in a rim.

The modular "clip-on" production essential allows easy and countless customizing: a regular WWT of Sindelfingen and clever signature. The doorways, roof, engine and pressure-teach are also very easy to eliminate or exchange, bearing in mind ideal functionality, looks, amusing and the first-class tuning for any event.

Lightweight, fun and clever: Smart, the WWT from Germany.

Hand knit socks and grannies have by no means been so much amusing?


____________________________TOYOTA NORI___________________________

Toyota NORI

NORI Concept:

Building on Toyota's management function in developing eco-touchy vehicles, the NORI concept demanding situations us to appearance ahead and create a clever vision that addresses gasoline financial system, emissions, green substances, new design and synthetic generation, and transforms it into an emotionally appealing design answer.

As the majority of current generation automobiles consist of a chassis covered by attached body panels, the NORI concept presents the idea that the body and chassis are one, as a PODULAR form, designed to be strong, light and beautiful. Bioplastics technology is created using "nori" (the Japanese word for seaweed) combined with a carbon fiber weave for strength. Woven into the PODULAR form are solar cells that capture and generate supplemental solar energy. As a holistic solution and new design aesthetic, NORI reduces weight and the number of parts while capturing and generating energy.

At the onset of the DESIGN process for each PODULAR shape is a collaboration among designers and engineers, making use of a "real time" layout envelope to ensure the correct stability of strength, mild weight and design aesthetics. This manner eliminates traditional design and engineering conflicts of form vs. Characteristic, and lets in the layout/engineering manner to come back to fruition on the same time.


The PODULAR paperwork are grown at factories located close by the ocean. Seaweed grows prolifically, and the usage of it as a bioplastics source is an attempt to minimalize the effect on the meals chain (corn/soy etc) that has formerly been used for bioplastics. The sun cells are embedded as a part of the developing/production process.


PSI's (partial shape insets) are applied to guard or disclose passengers to the elements and address car policies (along with blanketed wheels), while serving as a brand new form of personalization. The colour/pictures of NORI can be changed through an electronically generated statistics rate sent into the floor. There are no doorways: ingress/egress is performed through stepping over and into NORI's PODULAR form.


NORI utilizes 4 electric powered wheel automobiles and a removable battery %.


_____________________________VOLVO AIR_____________________________

Volvo Air Motion


A vehicle lighter than a Formula 1 racing vehicle... Experiencing the adrenaline rush of carving thru the canyons with up to three friends? Not the use of a drop of gas... Now simply imagine if these goals can be added together in a unmarried vehicle.

Tipping the scales at under 1,000 lbs. The Volvo Air Motion Concept makes those goals a truth and supplies this in a beautiful Scandinavian frame. Designed like a clam shell and sculptured from extremely light carbon fiber.

Minimizing weight and complexity, even as maximizing using enjoyment, is the philosophy in the back of this vehicle. Thousands of fewer additives are employed than in a conventional car, way to the effective, but easy, compressed air vehicles that replace a heavy inner combustion engine. The vehicles settle down beneath load in place of heat up, as a consequence getting rid of the need for heavy cooling structures. An incorporated technique to designing the chassis, interior and suspension also make contributions substantially.

To compress the air wanted for the centrally set up air tank, Air Replenishment Sites are used. Powered via air turbines floating 1,000 ft. Inside the air, they harness the energy of the wind and convert it to electricity to offer the compression.

Aimed on the using enthusiast, by way of a employer synonymous with safety and environmental care, the Volvo Air Motion demonstrates the beauty and purity of Scandinavian layout and can provide a guilt-loose, uncooked using experience.

Introducing a brand new shape of exhilaration. The Volvo Air Motion Canyon Carver.
