Bio-Car Made From Cartilage Folds Like a Limb

Bio-Car Made From Cartilage Folds Like a Limb

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

Don Michael Acelar De Leon

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.
