The future of automotive is closer than we think

GM and Cruise LLC had plans to unveil the first vehicle designed to drive without a driver on Tuesday. Cruise LLC is the autonomous-car startup that is majority owned by General Motors. The vehicle is designed to be electric and roomier than other traditional cars. There will be no steering wheel or pedals that are essential in normal vehicles. GM and other investors have given a significant amount of money to this project, raising Cruise’s expected value to $19 billion.

Even though it will be a long time until humans colonize the moon or Mars, some vehicle manufacturers are looking ahead to the future and designing concept vehicles for (literally) out of this world terrain. Lexus has been coming up with ideas for futuristic cruisers that could be used on the lunar surface. The ideas are just that, ideas. There are no actual designs out there that are being built, it was simply for a project that asked designers and architects to conceptualize how humans might eventually get around on the moon.

Well we say ‘ready’ – we doubt Lexus is seriously developing any of the ideas it submitted to Document Journal’s Lunar Design Project. The journal asked designers and architects from around the world to imagine how humans might live on the moon – the seven concepts pictured up top are the company’s idea of how we might get around.
