Design with no regard to plausibility is always fascinating, especially when applied to the sense of fantasy and freedom inspired by cars. But what happens when you introduce a limiting (and very real) factor to the project? Featured in Wired, the Royal College of Arts (RCA) recently unveiled 10 progressive automobile designs that all take into account our current limiting factor of petroleum and the futuristic results are stunning.
Of course, these might never be pushed into production, but it's an adventurous move for one of the most well-respected institutions in the field and designs like these inevitably influence what we might see in the near future. Who wouldn't want to drive around in a glass car? (Provided it was some type of bouncy glass, naturally.)
