This concept car by Los Angeles architects Emergent is made of cartilage and makes its own fuel from algae.
The bio-engineered car would be grown instead of manufactured, with doors and bonnet made of synthetic skin and the chassis capable of folding up like a limb so the vehicle can be transported easily.
The Semi-Rigid Car, designed to explore futuristic manufacturing processes, would be 3D-printed in one piece from a mixture of organic materials as well as polymers, rubbers, resins and silicone.
Doors would be controlled by tendon-like mechanisms, curling back in response to chemical signals emitted by the owner.
Algae tanks inside the car would provide fuel with LED lighting inside the tanks allowing production to continue at night, causing the semi-transparent bodywork to glow.
