City vitality / Car

City vitality

City vitality is a bionic city life scooter. The car body uses carbon nano tube foundation frame by 4D printing, with conchiolin DNA program self subsiding and then producing the whole frame as well as biological car paint at one time. The microbial hydrogenase cultured in the roof of car can absorb energy from sunlight and provide energy for the car’s bionic system via carbon nano tube. Besides, the artificial protein injected into the car frame can repair some general damages of the car body by making use of the energy provided by hydrogenase.
