When we look to the future, what do we see? The answer is – we have no idea but we can fantasise. If it’s not Back to the Future having a punt, it’s Volkswagen. Take a look at this concept mocked up by three designers: Derek Jenkins, Ian Hilton and Patrick Faulwetter, who incidentally won the 2007 LA Design Challenge, which looks at a solution to the unimaginably dense population that has reached the boiling point of complete saturation in 2057. The VW SlipStream is a solar powered vehicle that stands upright in the city to reduce congestion and sleeps on the freeway to reduce drag allowing it to reach speeds in excess of 250mph. The Bugatti Veyron will be purring at the thought! A range of thought provoking and interesting range of concepts drawn up by the designers. I like it, although I don’t think the world will be like this in 2057.
