Underwater Car and Other Science Fiction Made Fact Concepts

Imagine zooming around the front yard with one of these. This science fiction design for 2030 has a distinctly reptilian amphibious shape and a single front ball with 90 degrees freedom of rotation for steering. It isn’t practical of course, as 3 supports generally has a less stable center of gravity than 4 supports. The chassis was designed by Jorge Cross, a student at the University of Monterrey in Nuevo León, Mexico. The retro sci-fi feel is based on his theories of hydrodynamics and how they impact a vehicle’s shape. Little bit more detail and an extra pic or two can be found here. Our take? Nifty thing for children, perhaps. Maybe in the future we’ll have kiddy roads for them to ride these babies on.
