The Float Table

On first sight the Float Table doesn’t look that special, but if you look a little further you see that the blocks are not really suspended at all. The wooden blocks have magnets in them so they push each other away. This almost looks like a magic trick, but without the theatrical elements. Watch the movie here!

BMW i8 Production Model

BMW-i8_2999714b

I am excited to see that the production model of the BMW i8 is finally there. In my eyes the design of this car is different from everything else that is around today. From a design perspective I am happy to see that a lot of design elements survived in the designproces.  To bad the doors made of glass have not made it to the final stage from it’s concept car, the BMW efficientdynamics.

Next to it’s sleek and futuristic body the BMW i8 features state of the art plugin-hybrid-technology. The electric drive, a powerful with 131 hp is combined with a  1.5-litre three-cylinder turbo engine with 231 hp and 320 Nm of torque. Together the pair accelerates the BMW i8 from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds. It’s a pity that we would have to wait till 2014 before we can some i8’s in the wild.
