‘honda zeppelin’ by myung jin jung
myung jin jung a student at hongik university designed ‘honda zeppelin’, a luxurious
futuristic car as his final year thesis. tha car’s form was based on that of an airship.
the 2030 honda’s luxury sports sedan, zeppelin concept, was designed
with a design direction of ‘high-tech dynamic’, by applying design elements
of aerodynamic form. the car features an asymmetric styling line running from
the hood to the rear. a slit like windscreen is attached to a video display to
allow the driver a greater field-of-vision.
there is no dashboard in zeppelin. all the necessary information and other
elements needed for driving is displayed on the inter panel of the car,
and everything is controlled with only the minimum physical movement due
to the use of voice recognition technology. the seat position can be changed freely.
the front row seat can rotate 360 degrees and so when the car is not moving,
the front row seat and the back row seat can face each other. this makes it possible
for a brief meeting, enjoying tea and even working in the car.
