This is really interesting. The German car manufacturer BMW has made a concept car with shapeshifting capabilities. The BMW Gina. The car has a moving shifting frame, covered with a plastic coated lycra material. It “blinks” to open its lights, or should i say eyes, opening the hood looks more like a surgery cut being opened. I like the way the rear lights just shine through the cloth, otherwise completely invisible. Overall a very organic feel. Very cool, in lack of a better word. Almost awesome!
Only downside is the engine. A very old-school internal combustion solution… It’s kinda like having a coal plant run the Mars rover…
