LA Design Challenge Robocar 2057: Mercedes-Benz SilverFlow

Mercedes-Benz SilverFlow

So basically this is what eGMCarTech will look like in 2057. In the lasts three posts we’ve shown you cars that will be entered in LA’s 2007 Design Challenge Robocar 2057. We continue now with the Mercedes-Benz SilverFlow presented by the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design North America. The Mercedes-Benz SilverFlow is basically a car made up of micro particles that can broken down when not in use for easy storage. Now that’s going a little to far don’t you think?

Click through for their description and images of the Mercedes-Benz SilverFlow.

“The Mercedes-Benz SilverFlow utilizes micro-metallic particles that can be arranged via magnetic fields in many different forms based on pre-selected models available in an assembly program. The vehicles, which can be completely dissembled into a pool of ferromagnetic material for easy storage, can adapt and transform its shape to best suit the required purpose.

The magnetic assembler, activated by a simple key fob, creates whatever vehicle its user needs. All of the programmed modes for the SilverFlow are inspired by the Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix cars of the golden era of motorsports with distinct low slung shape, tail thin wheels and dramatic open-wheel design.

Any damage can be self repaired and any color/configuration/size is possible depending on the amount of source material available.”
