We continue the series of futuristic cars from the year 2050 with the Nissan OneOne concept, a blend between personal mobility and a family robot. This vehicle can also be considered the “ultimate pet” and you might want to know that its name is pronounced “wan-wan”, that stands for a dog’s barking in Japanese.
Nissan OneOne can function without a driver, picking your kid from school, using GPS, picking the dry cleaning, shopping and God knows what else. This concept car is based on a synthetic polymer muscle system, embedded in “legs” and the entire mechanism mimics the human skating on roller blades.
Also, we found out that the futuristic vehicle can change position, depending on the environment, so it’ll recline for better speed, stand up for better visibility and squeeze into tight areas.
Tryi Yeh’s incredible design has the potential of becoming the fastest vehicle on Earth, provided that it turns into a real “car”. Nissan Motivity 400C is a mere concept for now and you should know that it relies on the Maglev engine system, applied to each tire and making the vehicle float.
This hovercraft-like contraption comes with a triangle shape, in order to decrease drag, while the driver seat controls remain classic. In case Maglev doesn’t ring a bell, know that this concept uses the physical properties of magnetic fields generated by superconducting magnets, that can make objects float.
Also, it turns out that if you use the technology to its max potential and in an evacuated tunnel, you might even reach speeds up to 6,400 km/h. Of course, this is pure theory and one that applies to bullet trains on magnetic levitation tracks… We dare to dream, right?
