Shark Vehicle by Amin Einakian

Home > Winners > #32165


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Shark

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Vehicle

INSPIRATION:
Co-existing of human and nature and also turning something not useful to be useful

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Shark is a concept vehicle which can transform Drag force to a useful force in order to fly. Nowadays most of the automotive producers are focusing on aerodynamic aspects of their products and how their products can reduce the drag force and pass it through themselves. But design philosophy of Shark is to catch the Drag force at first and then, when the vehicle is lifted from the ground because of the air flow resistance, it will pass the air flow through the holes on its arms. These holes will open and close quickly and in a way that Shark can keep itself more balanced. This ability makes Shark to fly more distance and also provides some adventurist moves like spinning around horizontal axis. Shark also moves on the ground really fast because of rows of small balls in its arms which work with electro-magnetic force. But what will be the use of Shark? Shark can be used in most of tourist cities which have access to water, cities like ‘Rio de Janeiro’. Shark also is a 1+1 vehicle so that user can have fun with his/her friend. Users can drive Shark on the ground and after the pace reaches to a specific zone, Drag force will lift the car from the ground and after flying a long distance shark will dive into the water. Because of pointy design of bottom of this vehicle, shark can also be well balanced in water too. So it also has the ability to jump from water to water. Undoubtedly there are always some concerns about the co-existing of human and nature. Shark considered this factor by using electric power as a healthy fuel and a design inspired from nature. Since Shark is a vehicle which can be used in skies and on waters, its design is a combination of shark and bird anatomy.

This ability makes Shark to fly more distance and also provides some adventurist moves like spinning around horizontal axis.

PROFILE:
According to the engineering background all the design process should be clear and planned. From the first step (a clear question) to the last step (final presentation) everything should be clear and touchable. Although there are some concept solutions in the design process, the design should be practical at some point. This means the design can’t be that unreal or concept that doesn’t make sense even if it is a futuristic design.
