Design Concept of the Day #4: Honda IH (Intelligent Horse)
November 3, 2011 § Leave a comment
Loving this one, Honda’s post-apocalyptic Western vision. Its entry into the Los Angeles Auto Show Design Challenge is called IH, standing for Intelligent Horse, a vehicle “that serves as a companion and protector in the inhospitable and lonely environment”, in a world “disrupted by the impact of a gigantic comet. IH has the vestigial traces of an equine in its high-tech structure, which features nanotechnology and artificial intelligence, and it can be maintained, produced and enhanced locally. More at the Design Challenge website; the images look as if they’re Photoshopped onto pictures of Pioneertown, btw, a former Hollywood set out by the Joshua Tree National Park.
