Le Mans 2030 Concept for Michelin Design Challenge 2017

Le Mans 2030 Concept Car has been designed for Michelin Design Challenge 2017, it aims to make car racing much more interesting. David Voltner, the designer, believes that due to the complexity of this sport, slowly but sure, people will lost interest in it. That’s why, in order to attract more people to celebrate car racing sport, David has come up with this concept racing car. You can read his explanations below.

My topic for Le Mans 2030 is FORWARDING INFORMATIONS TO SPECTATOR, because the number of motorsport fans decreases rapidly every year. I believe that it is caused by the complexity of this sport. Average fans simply don’t know why certain things are happening on the race track and they often feel confused = which results into the lost interest. I am convinced that FIA, in order to rescue this beautiful sport will have to make regulation changes and make it much more transparent and catchy for all the fans to retain or broaden the fan base.

There are three pivotal innovations in my concept which I believe would make racing much more understandable and reduce the steep learning curve which motorsport fans must get over initially.

1. Specially designed rear which works like parachute – when the driver hits brake pedal it opens and increases the aerodynamic drag rapidly. As a consequence, the deceleration will become breathtaking.

2. Tires are one of the most significant variables in performance. Any driver can loose up to 10 seconds during a single lap. However, it is very hard to read the tire conditions for the fans because they might not understand that the driver is having some difficulties or that there is something wrong with the tires. Therefore I have developed special tires with 4 layers and each of the layers is created in a different color. This in turn indicates the exact level of tire wear during the race.

3. Wheel rim with revolving flaps that could work like an aerodynamic brake and a cooling system at the same time for the electric wheel hub when the need arises.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
