Designers do not have to be expert in cars as any car enthusiast can make a prototype design of a futuristic car. With Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and different photo editors available around that offer endless possibilities, people can transform and produce a magnificent out-of-this-world car design.

They can even provide animations to picture the 360-degree version of their imagination and show them to the world. In this post, in an attempt to explore how the automobile design industry can be injected with much innovation, we will share five of these radical advancements.

Logma Family Car

1) Logma Family Car

There are many versions and ideas related to supercars. One of the most astounding is the Logma family car, which features a twin-seat on the front and an advanced aero study that are perfect for eco-conscious car aficionados. Don’t be surprised if numerous people stare at this spaceship-looking vehicle as you drive it on busy roads.

Lamborghini

2) Rough Model of Lamborghini

Having some prints of Lamborghini style, this car design is quite interesting as there are no windows that can be literally seen by the naked eye. The outside might be seen only from the inside of the car. To establish its coolness, this green masterpiece was also designed to glow in the dark!

Mitsubishi Concept

3) The Green Mitsubishi Concept

Mitsubishi teased the nation as they announced the New Mitsubishi Concept. Its car interior is made of environmental-friendly materials such as plant-based resins, polybutylene succinate (PBS) and bamboo fiber. What makes it even more awesome is the fact that it runs on diesel and has no bulky transmission to propel the car.

Aiolos Concept

4) Aiolos Concept

Out of the futuristic cars in this list, the Aiolos concept is probably the most out-of-this-world. Is it possible to to ride this vehicle with comfort? South Korean designer Kyoung Soo Na assures that you can. It’s pleasant to realize that this beauty is also eco-friendly as it works through wind energy. Sadly, because the Aiolos Concept cannot fit any passengers, its magnificence can only be experienced by one person at a time.

Chevrolet Volt Concept

5) Chevrolet Electric Car

There had been lots of talks discussing about hybrid cars that conserve gasoline and lessen the effects of global warming. Chevrolet adds dimension to this idea by introducing a very creative design of a sports car for city driving. This compact car powered by electricity, available in blue and orange highlight colors, can only seat the driver, unfortunately.

The necessity for superior car parts will always be here, but in terms of visual value, the don’t necessarily have to be boxed-shape, with typical doors and windows and four wheels. Concepts of car designs make way to a very widely open field. Every person can just make his or her own wanted design. When this imagination is presented to the rest of the world, with enough defense and budget, one’s dream may just come true and find its way to the market.

The Top 5 Accident-Prone Countries in the World

Car Accident

Accidents are known as a great killer of many lives. They can happen to anyone, anywhere at any time with no cautions. Among all the forms of sudden misfortunes, road accidents are the most prevalent one today. Many drivers as well as people out on the road do not follow simple traffic rules such as the use of seat belt, motorcycle helmet policy, drink-driving law, and the speeding rule.

Assembled according to the reported number of road traffic deaths, here are the top five accident-prone countries in the world that all drivers should be aware of.

1) India

Considered as the most accident-prone country worldwide, India suffers more road accident deaths than any other country in the world, topping with a death toll of 130,000 in a single year. While a small percentage of the accidents are caused by the carelessness of drivers and pedestrians, lack of traffic management and flooding of the roads, their primary cause are the country’s congested and poorly-constructed roads.

2) China

Although the number of road accident deaths in China is “only” half of India’s, the traffic in China is still known as risky for vehicles and pedestrians. There is even a saying that you must master the skill of defensive driving in order to survive Chinese traffic. This is mainly because traffic rules are ignored since overtaking is a norm and the red light is identified as green if there are no cars passing anyway.

3) Brazil

Driving in Brazil is another carnival ride. From car theft and armed robberies to reckless drivers and traffic jams, Brazil also holds a high number of road accidents. Size doesn’t matter in Brazil as well where motorcycles and trucks are identified as the most unsafe vehicles to be with on the road. Motorcycles go between lanes and a number of truck drivers drive under the influence of alcohol. It is also known that the majority of Brazilians do not follow pedestrian lanes and cross the roads while the vehicles are on the go.

4) United States of America

As the vehicles on the road increase in number, so does the U.S. becomes a more hazardous place. The top three causes of car accidents in the U.S. involve alcohol, speeding, and reckless driving. It is usually the driver’s fault that road accidents happen in the country. Aside from drunken drivers, a huge percentage of the total number of driving accidents per year are caused by talking on the phone, chatting with their passengers, and eating or drinking while on the wheel.

5) Indonesia

The streets of Indonesia is the 5th most accident-prone place in the world because of its lack of traffic law enforcement. One of them is its leniency in passing driver’s licences. Public transit drivers in Indonesia do not receive the necessary training, especially on road regulations before they obtain their licences. Insufficient checks on bus operators add to the potential road carnage.

Given this list, it can then be understood how strictly implementing and following traffic rules is a must to avoid accidents that can lead to injuries and loss of lives. Whether you are a driver, passenger, or pedestrian, we all need to be mindful of the enforced laws for the sake of our own safety and the safety of others.

Rolls-Royce to Open its Showroom in PH

Phantom. Ghost. Wraith. These are names that are not fictitious characters from stories of the unknown, but are rather characters from the widely known brand, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ltd.  For many years, we have only seen a glimpse of their automobiles in movies, online stores, and second hand sellers.  Well, it is an honor for me to announce that such glimpses are finally over for that famous logo comprised of two R’s will soon be prominently visible in the Philippines.

According to a September 2012 BusinessWeek interview with Paul Harris, regional director of Rolls Royce for Asia Pacific, the automotive giant is looking into expanding to the Indo-China and Philippine areas.  This major business decision is primarily due to the fact that the company earned a good growth of sales in India this year, aside from its consistent market sales in Hong Kong.

Rolls-Royce Showroom

This announcement posts a positive mark on our economy. Just as much as our beach hubs and historical landmarks are valued, the emergence of this luxury brand entices more tourists to come visit our country as it resembles both wealth in status and safety in driving.  Aside from its economic value, the arrival of Rolls-Royce to the Philippines shows how diverse the country is to change in the realm of technology and scientific advancements.  Open to new and positive changes, this advancement sets new beginnings and brighter futures for both purchasers and investors.

This innovation will result in a lot of curiosity and research in the thousands of car enthusiasts out there as all of this will soon be included in Top Gear’s car comparison and pricelist. Everything leading up to this event seems to be in perfect timing since there is news to update the plate numbers in our government list.  This update poses an aesthetic challenge for the car makers, and it’s exciting to see what the good people at Rolls-Royce has up their sleeves for this particular trick.

Think about the minor yet significant hype. Who wouldn’t want to own a Rolls-Royce that features the first batch of its brand-new set of plates?

No formal announcement has been released by the company as to where and when they shall build their showroom in the Philippines. In spite of the lack of information, it is still a positive thought that all of this is actually happening.  Our very own president has even met up with the car maker’s chief ranking officials, inviting them to show interest in a couple of investments.  So far so good. In the meantime, let us keep our fingers crossed as we await for the arrival of this crown-jewel.
