Inspired by the shape of a surfboard, the name of this curious yet spirited vehicle concept is “sandYou.” The amphibious vehicle will run on a sleek electric motor imbued inside the main body. The “car” will have four lifebuoy like inflated wheels, with fans incorporated within them that will rotate with the wind, and act as wind turbines, generating clean energy to charge the batteries. Projecting out of the wheel rims, these fans will also act dually as boat propellers guiding the car in the water.
The main frame will consist of four light seats made of wood and tissue, with small, dainty boxes attached to their topsides for carrying of personal items. A foot pedal will also be provided in front of the seats, just in case one has the mind for sailing. The roof will be composed of simple canvas, for blocking out the sun, but again it can be converted into a sail by simply cranking the winch. Duality is seriously the name of the game in this unorthodox yet delectable green design concept.
