Soft Vehicle
If we are able to control movement systems so that accidents are avoided, vehicles will not need to be made with hard materials.

People are becoming more concerned about aesthetics and fashion, they will want to have this reflected in their vehicle. Simultaneously, fashion nowadays is starting to look for other ways to express and expand itself.

I propose a private vehicle that responds to this fashion tendency, and with the potential to use soft materials. I would like to extrapolate rubber, textile and other soft materials into exterior vehicle design, using them in an innovative way.
