The world has been witnessing awesome concept cars whose designers claim that these will change the world. But BMW has made the greatest approach at this by making a shape changing car that is made of a frame covered with super fabric. This is something that is totally innovative and opens a new field of creativity for car developers.
GINA light visionary model ,Instead of steel, aluminum or even carbon fiber, the GINA Light Visionary Model has a body of seamless fabric stretched over a movable metal frame that allows the driver to change its shape at will. The car — which actually runs and drives — is a styling design headed straight for the BMW Museum in Munich and so it will never see production, but building a practical car was’t the point.
The car is extremely beautiful and when i first saw it i didn’t knew that it was made of fabric. I thought it to have a metallic body. The fabric body has given the car so many options that we have never ever seen before. Like the frame has movable parts, that changed the shape of the car. I loved the moving seat system as well, it made seats to be adjusted according to my wish.
The car takes the level of customization to a different height altogether.
The first thing you would have in mind is that if the fabric tore apart. The fabric is not some clothes you see around. BMW says the fabric skin – polyurethane-coated Lycra – is resilient, durable and water resistant. It’s stretched over an aluminum frame controlled by electric and hydraulic actuators that allow the owner to change the body shape. Want a big spoiler on the back? Wider fenders? No problem. “The drastic reinterpretation of familiar functionality and structure means that drivers have a completely new experience when they handle their car,” BMW says.
