A small, but very spacious luxury yacht that transports us to an alternate universe with its highly modern, sleek design, with glass windows running through the whole body. The objective was to make a sturdy boat with completely sustainable materials such as flax fibers, cork and eco-epoxy resin. It can be ordered with an electric or fuel engine.

 

 

OBDeleven – Smart Vehicle Diagnostic Tool by Voltas IT

 

A wireless device that can connect itself to a vehicle’s operating system to diagnose problems with a cloud-based software, via the easiest way: a smartphone or tablet.

IDRAK by IDRAK TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER

Completely unmanned and revolutionary, this concept brings something new to public transportation. These vehicles can move on roads and railways, and they can be not only buses, but trucks and taxis, as well. The vehicles are equipped with  artificial intelligence, robotics and state-of-the-art navigation features. The autopilot works based on camera, sensor, and radar technologies, making these transportation devices next-level when it comes to moving around in the city or outside of it.

Taxie – Professional Child Safety Seat by Trafold Ltd.

The central concept is to always keep children safe when travelling in cars. Taxi drivers have a constant problem when it comes to transporting children, as child’s seats are large and hard to fit into the car – they also can’t be there constantly, so they need to be taken out and put back in depending on the customers. This children’s seat offers a solution for three child sizes at once, making it easier for taxi drivers to transport children of any age. The seat is enclosed in a small bag and can be carried and stored easily.

OOHBIKE by Ànima Barcelona

 

Electric bikes, taken yet to another level! OOHBIKE has a hubless front wheel without spokes that allows you to use the interior space of the wheel for elements such as: storage and package transport space, advertising uses, etc. To keep is as sustainable as possible, the painting is done by 3d printing and the use of recycled materials, keeping the design elegant and sleek in terms of technology and looks.
