Specul_o_mobile is a speculation platform on the topic of “future of mobility”.
This project revolves around the idea that developments in driverless and electric automobile technologies offer a potential change in many elements of the automobile. In near future, focus of drivers and passengers are likely to shift away from the road itself. Many customary typologies we got used to will be open for discussion as new motor technologies, safer driving algorithms enter our daily lives.
Specul_o_mobile opens up a new platform for designers to speculate on these projections. This platform employs an interface similar to a character creation screen, combining parts to create a speculated automobile. Through the applet, it produces a 3D illustration and a text statement regarding the speculated capabilities of the new vehicle. By allowing users to introduce their own parts, the platform aims to create an archive of parts which can be combined to speculate how automobile of the future would/should be like.
