The main inspiration came from Alp’s KLR 650-A motorcycle, which "is known to be a reliable mule that inspires people to ride out and explore."
"The idea was to create a fun vehicle that has character and offers a sense of freedom and easy communicating technology, delivered by a single touch screen multi display."
"Full internet satellite connectivity means the vehicle cannot be lost or stolen."
The powertrain adopts all-wheel drive system and electric motors.
A roof-mounted solar panel contributes to recharging the batteries; the luggage is removable, so that "it can be taken next to your tent and used as a stool/desk."
This system includes GPS navigation, and connection with other Capsules.
Side mirrors are replaced by external cameras which are connected to LCD displays inside the cabin.
|The project was developed and visualised using various graphics software and traditional sketches.|
"The vehicle is targeted at people who loves nature and enjoys outdoor camping and adventure. If it was to be manufactured, I can easily see it being used as a commuter as well."
