Mercedes has just reached the next level by summoning an automobile from the lab farm. We thank the German auto manufacturer for their BIOME concept car, unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2010. This is a masterpiece of innovation.
It is made from an ultralight material called BioFibre so that the finished vehicle, though wider than a typical car, only weighs 876 pounds (397 kilograms). The best part is that the BIOME isn’t assembled. It grows from two seeds — one that forms the interior and one that forms the exterior. The wheels germinate from four additional seeds placed in the nursery.
Press Release: “The Mercedes-Benz BIOME grows in a completely organic environment from seeds sown in a nursery. Out on the road the car emits pure oxygen, and at the end of its lifespan it can be simply composted or used as building material.”
How awesome is that! This will just act like trees on road !. Hope Mercedes-Benz finds a way to commercialize this soon.
