The main reason that these designers designed the Nanospyder was in direct response to the challenge that was laid down by Design Los Angeles which is a conference that is set to be held at the Los Angeles Motorshow that normally takes place in the month of November.
The brief was to actually design a vehicle that is able to make the absolute most out of California that doesn’t harm the environment - this was simple compared to the solution.
The team was able to meet the brief by taking the time to think beyond the current techniques of manufacturing. According to the creators of the Nanospyder, the Nanospyder would actually be created out of the latticework of millions, no billions of nano devices that are tiny and programmable.
devices will measure less than half of a millimeter in actual diameter. Each one of the tiny devices can also be programmed so that they are either weak or as strong as required which in turn means that there can be active crumple zones created. Remaining immensely strong is the spine or the mold of the vehicle on which all of the rest of the components are attached.
The nano-lattice will be clothed with certain panels that are formed out of a combination of organic materials. Some of the organic materials will be able to inflate in order to provide further cushioning in the event that there was an impact to the car.
As polysynthesis generates electricity in small amounts, the material actually doubles as a power source. When this is coupled with hydrogen fuels, it generates power in order to operate the really tiny electric motors that are mounted in the hubs of every wheel.
When you look at this concept vehicle, you will see that the Nanospyder actually gives insight to the incredible depth of thinking when going into search for the sustainable forms of modern means of transportation.
