Chase 2053 – Hydrogen-Powered Vehicle By Thomas Larsen Roed
Visualizing the future of transportation, Norwegian designer Thomas Larsen Roed has created a vehicle concept dubbed the “Chase 2053” that runs on both the land and in the air to allow safe and brisk movement in urban environments. Developed for the year 2053, as indicated by its name, the futuristic vehicle also includes a core grown from mycelium, a process that does not require advanced facilities, which is further skinned with carbon nanotubes to provide extreme strengths in preferred directions. Powered by a slush hydrogen engine, the three-wheeled vehicle features a combination of stretch materials and polycarbonate to finish its exterior. In addition, the low need of fixed tools makes the vehicle lightweight and easy to produce on a large scale.
