There are so many mechanical innovations and crazy inventions that technologically it is already entirely possible to have a part car, part bus, part train parked in your garage. It does sound a little insane, but only because it’s a completely new concept to us. We don’t realize that when we’re on a plane, we’re basically flying on a drone, as drones are based on the exact same technology. Does having a personal flying vehicle in front of your home excite you or scare you?
Designing a future vehicle (maybe a 3D spaceship?) is a liberating experience, since there are no rules and no expectations. The Future Vehicles challenge is aimed at those who can’t help but wonder what the future supercars will look like, how we’ll travel from point A to point B and what new and captivating features these vehicles will possess. Any sci fi 3D models are welcome!
Do not limit yourself to the conventional means of transport, let’s explore all possible methods of travelling – from electric rickshaws, to two-wheeled part drone, part car monsters or even flying trams. Any computer-generated 3D model of a fantasy concept vehicle is welcome, as we join forces in unraveling the future travel.
There are two categories of awards in this challenge. Each of them will have one winner and two runner-ups.
The award will be given for the best 3D Future Vehicles models or visualizations uploaded during the challenge period.
