Given the speed with which the new technologies are finding their place in this age, the future travel, as we see it, is much closer to our times than we think and is one of the most exciting topics among the creators. Considering the fact that people these days are more hesitant to use cars in big cities because of never-ending traffic and parking headache, the concept of a part car, part drone, part plane vehicle is ever so popular in the circles of futurists as well as the mainstream media. Future vehicles are expected to solve many critical problems – from reducing the number of accidents and traffic-related death rates, to solving the nasty carbon emission issues.
The idea of a sat-nav was once regarded as a wild sci-fi dream, too, while self-driving cars were seen as a distant and somewhat eccentric experiment. Yet, it would be difficult to argue their importance and validity today. With the thought-provoking 3D modelling Future Vehicles challenge CGTrader.com aims to get its designer minds buzzing: how will the future supercars look like? Will we use an entirely new type of vehicles to travel from point A to point B? What new and exciting features will they possess?
“It’s already quite clear that the future vehicles will be computers on wheels, yet what matters to visual people is whether they’ll look good enough. Future Vehicles challenge targets the visionaries and inventors, whose imagination is triggered by a mere thought of a flying supercar,” - said Marius Kalytis, CEO of CGTrader.com.
