This off road electric concept vehicle’s design was based on a reptilian form. The Helios by Kim Gu-Han has a folding solar panel fan that deploys while the vehicle is at rest and resembles the Australian Frilled-neck lizard.
To increase the surface area of the photovoltaic panels, when not in motion the upper surface of the car transform into a large "fan" with four wings to store more energy or to serve as an energy station.
This transformable design was inspired by natural evolution - some animals have developed a stretchable skin to absorb more sunlight.
Kim Gu-Han graduated from the University of Dusiberg-Essen in Germany and won the 2008 Interior Motives Design Award for Best Use of Technology.
