1. Mithos Electromagnetic Vehicle
Flight of fancy, or real car? Its name will give you a clue: “Mithos” — closer to mythology than reality. As far-fetched as it seems, designer Tiago Miguel Inácio is serious, calling it “essentially a celebration of the future, each day closer to reality.”
This zero-emissions supercar has a terrain-scanning system (what, no robot driver?), instant torque response with its 1.5 MW electromagnetic motor, and then we get into the fantasy world with quantum boost technology that lets the car magnetically levitate over some sort of future roads, and it’s even teleportation-ready. No word on whether its phasers are set to stun or kill.
Dream on, Tiago, but we certainly got a kick out of your forward-looking design.
It’s been another big week for Top 10 Tech, with jaw-dropping devices that will make you feel like you’ve awakened in a future world.
As we separated the junk from the gems this week, we were astonished to find a car that’s more spectacular than any we’ve ever seen, and even though it’s a design concept so far, it’s probably pointing to a future of electromagnetism, levitation and maybe even teleportation.
Beyond the ridiculous, we found the sublime, with a convenient new remote control that you plug into your iPhone, an interesting shape for a camera design, a great idea for USB connectors, and spectacular ways to make you fly like a bird — or even sling angry birds in space.
So come along with us as we take you into space, on adventures and expeditions, show you some spectacular ideas and concepts, and accompany you into the future itself — right here on our latest Top 10 Tech This Week.
Here’s last week’s Top 10 Tech.
