VW Pholeum Concept

September 30th, 2009

a11 600x424 566x400 VW Pholeum ConceptAlexei Mikhailov is a three year design student in Canada specializing (if you couldn’t tell) in transportation design.  His design studio is called AMV-Design and you need to see his work, including this one, the VW Pholeum Concept.  What will this world be like in 10, 20, or 30 years?  Well, at our current population and pollution growth rates, we will inevitably see transportation like this in the near future.  Let’s talk about why this vehicle, and others like it, will save our assess…

The pod structure allows travel for one adult, granting a human a sense of personal space amongst mega cities where over-crowding is a growing issue. The external wheel base allows the vehicle to pivot in a 360 degree range, ideal for maneuvering and parking.  The wheels themselves are fully immersed rubberized tires, they conform and absorb road bumps eliminating the use of traditional suspension systems.  The tires are made of bio-degradable rubber which can be fully recycled and reused at the end of its lifetime.

The vehicle is comprised of memory plastic panels and body work, which allows the material to deform back to its original state if it becomes dented or scratched with the proper application of heat.  This memory plastic is completely recyclable and can be reused to fix ‘irreparable’ damage.  The chassis are honey comb shape aluminum alloy making it stronger and lighter.

Entirely new safety design is the external airbag system located on the pod and on the wheels.  The airbags deploy when sensors indicate when a large mass is headed in collision course of the vehicle, deploying in a few meters of its radius.

The powerhouse uses four individual hydrogen fuel cell technology motors, each situated in each wheel.  Having the electric motors in each wheel not only theoretically delivers precision power to each wheel, but also eliminates the need for brake rotors, since the motors themselves have the ability to function as brakes with the regenerate power application.

The interior housing is minimalist, with the control steering pod mimicking game like controls that many younger generations are already use to.  And the clear body green house shell design allows for total and complete visibility all around.

In conclusion, this car kicks series pod-booty and intends to transport and nourish the world, being sustainable, green, and recyclable.

    Exactly. The ‘Snapdragon’ happens to include a poor GPU, which you mentioned the specifics of in your comment. To that end I heavily dislike the idea of calling a phone with one of these SOCs ‘high-end’. My overclocked Droid performs general calculations nearly as well at the same clock speed as a Snapdragon at 1Ghz, but it’s 3D performance beats the Snapdragon easily – and Hummingbird just kills everything else on Android. It’s a shame Microsoft made Snapdragon the only currently supported chip for 7, as it’s going to limit game development in the long run. Shame Focus isn’t rocking a Hummingbird.
