MOY Concept Car Is A Screen On Wheels

And by “screen” I mean it’s something very similar to your computer monitor. MOY’s body is built with “outer and inner polycarbonate layers, with layers of liquid crystals, LED diodes and electro chromic foil (film) in between.” The body allows this electric car to take on any color you like, similar to creating a wallpaper for your screen, or just download it from the net. It also allows you to play videos on the move. Cool!

The car designed by Elvis Tomljenovic is a winner of the auto(r) automotive design conference in Zagreb, Croatia.

Shelves For Life: With You In Life And In Death

Okay, so here’s the idea. Get a strong emotional relationship and bond going between yourself and your possessions. And then have your furniture follow you to the grave.

The structure can be used as shelves during life, and when the time comes, it can be arranged to create a coffin. Spooky. I, for one, won’t be comfortable seeing a coffin in front of me every single day.

A Little Turbine On Your Tap To Generate Electricity

Energy conservation gets an entirely new meaning with this concept; you get to produce electricity everytime you use water. The Mini Hydro Turbine concept by Jin Woo Han has a small generator, that draws on the kinetic energy of flowing water to produce electricity. This should ideally be able to power small gadgets like electric shaver or electric toothbrush, but for it to be a commercial success, I guess the machine would require very high levels of efficiency.
