From the start we get the impression that this vehicle is straight out of some cartoon or an off-world movie, or just some 10-year old’s imagination. Its unconventional bulbous shape looks like rides seen in shows like Dragon-Ball Z.
But what sparks something like this? It could be a number of things, of which boredom could be one, but I don’t feel that’s the case here. This design studio is much too strong to just make things for no reason. So that leaves us with the option that the Dodgy could be used to showcase some technological ideas.
But it isn’t the thinkers that rule the world, it’s the doers, and this is a start. However, ahead of myself and Burov Design, was Goodyear. They have been working on an idea for a while now that includes the use of a spherical wheel. Check out the video below and share it with your friends. This could be the very direction some of our vehicles will be headed. And why the heck not, it’s awesome tech if we can ever get it going.
Now that we know why the Dodgy could be a very big deal, let’s have a look at the design. From the start we see that it’s only constructed for one rider. We can also see no steering wheel of any kind, leading us to believe that it will most certainly be autonomous.
The same holds true for the side panels. What side panels? They're just doors made of mostly glass, once again offering visibility that does away with the use of mirrors. But being autonomous, mirrors aren't needed anyway. All you have to do is enjoy the view.
Throw on some LED head and rear lights, the Nissan logo, and maybe, just maybe, you could see this on the streets in the future. If not this exact design, some aspect or another could very well be seen somewhere else.
