Indian Designer’s smart mobility concept
Naveen Nallappan, Hi. I am Naveen, a very simple person with few needs and greats aspirations hoping to make a dent in the world I came to be in. I have always been extremely passionate about anything with wheels and wings and I seem to have a good appreciation of how cars work technically and how the car business works. As far as my love for cars go, more than power, speed and acceleration, I love how perfectly cars have come to fit into our lives and how beautiful moments in life are spent in cars. That's my brief introduction. Stay tuned to IAB! Drive safe, advocate safe driving!
Indian Designer Ramesh Gound has come up with a smart design solution to escape horrendous traffic jams in big cities. His design concept consists of a two similar motorcycles which can be attached together to make a car. When there is traffic jam, the car can be split into two bikes again and the two commuters can slip through the traffic with ease on their bikes.
Ramesh Gound submitted this concept for his Diploma Project at the National Institute of Design and this project was funded by Renault Design India. Gound was fueled by the ‘buy one, get one free’ bargaining mentality in India.
It’s interesting to find designers drawing inspiration from the cultural influences of India and ending up with radical designs like this. The viability of such smart concepts for production is something only time can answer.
