A Hamster Ball for Humans
Taking inspiration from WWII fighter planes, designer Da Feng has created the “Gym Car,” a human-electric hybrid vehicle that integrates several exercise machines into the context of the driver’s seat. While many automobiles on the market today have already begun to resemble home entertainment systems on wheels, this design further pushes conventional notions of what a car can be well beyond the limits of simply being a means of getting from point A to point B.
The cockpit of the Gym Concept is stuffed with exercise machines that charge the batteries and keep that carbon-fiber body (the car’s, not yours) rolling. We have no idea how he did it, but designer Da Feng managed to get a step machine, rowing machine, bench press, pull-up simulator and weights into the car’s tiny confines.
