Tesla Model H Supercar Concept Revealed, Has Six Electric Motors

Envisioned by automotive designer Cosmin Ispas, the Tesla Model H is a supercar concept powered by 6 electric motors – 2 in the front wheels and 4 for the back. Its graphene batteries are placed directly beneath the floor, centered more in the front for better weight balance. “From an aerodynamic perspective, the concept has a full length floor diffuser that channels the air on the car’s floor as it creates a massive amount of downforce. The front vents contain a set of flaps that are hidden inside, allowing the air to flow in different ways,” said Ispas. Click here to view the first image in today’s viral picture gallery.

Printflatables: MIT’s New Design & Production Process Uses Thermoplastic Fabric and Air

A group of students at MIT Media Lab’s Tangible Media Group has created a new design and fabrication system that they call Printflatables. Their system can produce “human-scale, functional and dynamic inflatable objects.” If that doesn’t sound exciting, well, take a look at some of the potential applications: Printflatables from Tangible Media Group on Vimeo.We use inextensible thermoplastic fabric as the raw material with the key principle of introducing folds and thermal sealing. Upon inflation, the sealed object takes the expected three dimen- sional shape. The workflow begins with the user specifying an intended 3D model which is decomposed to two dimensional fabrication geometry. This forms the input for a numerically controlled thermal contact iron that seals layers of thermoplastic fabric.I for one … Read More

One Foxy Streetfighter

If you’ve never heard of Renard (French for fox), that’s probably because you’re probably under the age of 90! A couple of designers and racing engineers got together back in 2008 to revive the Estonian brand founded in the 1930s… and it looks fresh as ever.Its character lies in a modern, one-of-a-kind monocoque body that’s met with retro lines and a logical form. Quite simply, there’s nothing else like it! However, it’s not so quirky that any amount of functionality or user-friendliness has been sacrificed. That ultra-light composite unibody integrates the bike’s frame, fuel tank, and air box into a single load-bearing unit that houses a longitudinally mounted V2 Moto Guzzi Quattrovalvole engine and components that … Read More

A Modern Home in the Backyard of Another Home in San Francisco

While its location in the backyard of another house might sound atypical for many, it’s not that unusual in larger cities, like San Francisco where land is at a premium. Thomas Building Group took on the challenge to make the site work and created a modern home with varied levels, lots of windows, and a loft space above the kitchen. The exterior is clad with vertical siding to elongate the height. The home boasts an open floor plan for the main living space, which features wide plank wooden floors and ceilings that sandwich the fresh white walls. Above the all-white kitchen is a loft space that’s easily accessed via a step ladder. The streamlined kitchen includes large windows that frame views of San Francisco… Read More
