Designer Ian Kettle has come up with a concept that could represent a sneak peak at what cars might be like in the future. The vehicle explores the possible consequences of implementing brain machine interface (BMI) technology into the automobile.
Neuron concept car does away with the traditional steering wheel we’ve come accustomed to, in favor of controlling the car with his mind.
A flexible translucent rubber skin, meanwhile, would be stretched across the bone-like structure to provide protection from the elements but maximizing how much light is let in to the car.
BMI technology would create machines and products that could almost be considered an “extension of the self”, with many aspects of traditional design – such as physical controls and safety system – becoming redundant.
