The-Float-Is-Renaults-Car-of-the-Future

Renault has always been one of those automotive manufacturers willing to push the boundaries of what most would consider a car when it comes to their concepts. The brand reached out to the MA Industrial Design students of Central Saint Martins UAL (University of the Arts London) with a simple brief about dreaming up their vision for the future of mobility. The Float, designed by Yuchen Cai, means Renault‘s future could be in modular bubble pods. Born and raised in Shanghai, the designer focused on a modular design, featuring peanut-shaped bubble pods that can connect multiple ways depending on need. As opposed to the traditional propulsion system that involves power passed to the wheels, The Float uses Maglev technology similar to bullet trains to move. Yunchen Cai’s The Float beat out both Stephanie Chang Lui’s Flo and Tuna Yenici’s Vue concepts for top honors. Check out all three at the link below.

There are few watches with as storied a legacy as the G-SHOCK. Originally released in 1983, the Shock Resistant and 200M Water Resistant watch has remained relevant to this day. It just got even better with the release of the first full-metal addition to the continually evolving 2100 line. This model retains the original streamlined, minimalist design while being even more sleek, durable and feature-packed. With Tough Solar Power, Smartphone Link and Super Illuminator, it’s an analog watch built for the digital age. The G-SHOCK GBD2100 is available in silver, black IP and Bronze IP colorways, so there’s a stylish version for every occasion.
