An almost unbelievable design concept proposes a portable car made out of a skin-like material that is fueled by algae.

The architects of Los Angeles firm Emergent present a daring car concept unlike anything seen before: a ‘bio’-car made completely from cartilage and would produce its own fuel using algae. The car would have its doors and bonnet made of synthetic skin and its chassis able to “fold like a limb” for easier vehicle transportation. Dubbed the ‘Semi-Rigid’ car, the concept is also expected to be mass-produced via 3D printing from a mixture of organic materials as well as polymers, rubbers, resins and silicone.
