MOY by Elvis Tomljenovic

Croatian design student Elvis Tomljenovic has won a car design competition with MOY, a concept that allows users to download their own surface designs for their vehicles.

The car features a polycarbonate shell embedded with LEDs and LCDs that produce static or animated patterns on the vehicle’s surface.

A range of ready made designs are available to download for users without the required design skills.

Tomljenovic, a student of the Zagreb School of Design, won a competition at the auto(r) automotive design conference in March.

The vehicle is powered by electric motors housed in the wheels and is controlled by drive-by-wire technology.

Here are details from Tomljenovic:

About the concept

MOY concept is made for generation who uses technology as a means to express themselves and communicate with others. The idea behind MOY concept is that everyone can design their own car on their own computer and then apply the design to the vehicle using wireless data transfer or share it with other people through web-site, forum, e-mail etc. To those who lack the necessary skills or time to create their own design, we offer the option of downloading ready made designs.

The vehicles are interconnected, so the change is possible in motion. Movement recognition technology enables us to draw on the car in real time. Since MOY can display both static images and videos, it can be used as a new medium of promotion.

The vehicle is powered by batteries that charge electromotors set in wheels and controlled by drive-by-wire technology. The body of the car is made of outer and inner polycarbonate layers, with layers of liquid crystals, LED diodes and electrochromic foil in between.
