Design conversation

Functionalities the car should have

- Ultrasound (proximity sensors)
- Cameras (visual processing)
- Lidar
- Accelerometer, Gyro
- Head mounted Display / holograms for passengers
- Modularity
- Ability to switch for passenger to driver
- freedom of position, modular free interior

Exterior “MINERAL”

- consistent triangles
- remove the aberration on the non-triangles
- Cover of the batteries
- wheels surrounding shape should be triangles
- the car should not look like a “mushroom”, the skirt should wrap around below the car as real cut gems do have a top and a bottom

Interior Design “ORGANIC”

- desire to have a modular flooring system to attach equipments, Railings
- curved wheel covers
- Electronics and dashboard on the front panel 
- Dashboard with Android tablet
- Kill switch on dashboard
- Breaks on a small floor-mounted module
- Need to have furnitures that require no screw driver to attach

Soundscape, feeling inside

- Feeling of spaceship
- Sensor and progressive / gentle alert, like in a Star Wars
- interior needs to have cool air, air flow
- Story “Vocal kill switch”
- Massage chair as suggested by Lucille
