Exo-Audi concept: Human powered robotic system leans on nanotech
On the first glance, the Exo-Audi concept may not look like some uber-futuristic vehicle; but it is every bit futuristic, mostly because the source of its power sounds too fantastic. The concept is a human powered vehicle, making use of its exoskeleton and the advances nanotechnology may see in the future, this human powered vehicle could be fairly powerful and fast.
In a way, the driver and the car become “one,” the vehicle drawing energy required to run from the driver’s kinetic energy. The designer, Andrea Mocellin envisions a robotic system that would give the human body “more power, more control and reduces stress to all the muscles, provides more endurance and more fun.” The idea of the concept is to re-invent a physically engaging driving experience, and do that in a high-tech way.
