Title: I don't think this is a cool car! - Ibmach Team's Future Rider Submission Video

Duration: 1:00 minute

Do you think this is a cool car?

I don't think so.

Do you know what I really think is cool?

A car that is compelled

in saving our future

instead of being a noisy dinosaur burner.

Boa*, you don't think a midsize SUV

can be a cool car?

Well, I got you.

It's 2033.

We can do much more.

With a K.I.T.T. inspired design

and a body that is made of vegetable fibers

which makes the car both

recyclable and biodegradable,

we thought of a four engine electric car

that is powered mostly through the air.

All of this powered by

a strong personality AI.

Take a look at our PDF

report to learn more.



“Shell Eco-marathon aligns with our interests to establish more efficient ways to use energy. It challenged us to learn more about collaboration, problem solving techniques, technology and team management. We believe it’s up to us to rethink consumption patterns for future generations and the future of our planet.”

Approach to Design and Innovation

Envisioning a future similar to solarpunk, the team designed their car for 2033. In this context, humanity would have been able to solve a large part of contemporary problems, especially those related to climate change and pollution, therefore their technology focuses on sustainability.

Approach to Creativity

The team believes that the technological advances expected for this next decade are enormous. With the ascension and intensive improvement of artificial intelligence, the widespread use of new manufacturing, data and upcoming technologies, they believe that the car of the future design needs to establish new industry standards.
