Audi Snook / Mono Spherewheel Car

iF concept design award 2010

iF concept design award 2010

Snook is a double seater premium car that rides on a single spherical wheel. Its stabilisation system is inspired by Eurofighter Typhoon and depends on triple axis accellerometers. With the vision of two stacked billard balls, the hardware demands of urban mobility becomes reduced to the minimum. Formal issue: Agility through instability. The simplicity of the sphere wheel that provides the multidirectional E-engine, earns emphasis by the cabin that is also spherical. They alloy in a formal lamination with place for both, man and machine. This sculptural attempt appreciates the shrinking of technology and the increase of human responsability.
