Designer Cornelius Commans gives us this amazing twist on the Piaggio Ape, a camper scooter. You can't buy it yet. It's just a concept--for now.
From Commans' website:
This is my bachelor thesis in Industrial Design which I have finished this month. Basically it is the transformation of a Piaggio APE 50 tricycle into a small one man camper. Corresponding to my field of study particular attention is paid to the design of the vehicle. But as I have also put a lot of effort into the modeling and rendering I want to share it with you on this forum.
Everything in these pictures is CG except for obviously the human and the environment with the sheep.
The model was built up completely in rhino. Then exported to Bryce where it was textured, set up and rendered. Photoshop was used to create the textures and to correct the final renderings.
I think my Volkswagen camper van is a lot more comfortable, and likely has a similar engine.

Bird Scooter really is the Uber of scooters: vastly overcapitalized, vastly overvalued, incapable of turning a profit...ever.
It may not rank up there with climate change or personal debt, but confess…isn’t it the worst when you’re trying to put a food container in the fridge, but can’t find the right lid to fit? Hey, not everything has to be a global crisis to be irritating to the core. But still…it’s even more […]
Assembling a truly autonomous smart home is getting closer and closer to reality every day. But for every new smart bulb, thermostat, home security system and appliance we set loose within our walls, there are still probably a half dozen “dumb” items we’d still love to replace. But whether they’re too costly or too big […]
With so many manufacturers out there these days, it’s tough to know who to trust in the ultra-competitive wireless earbuds market. If you’ve never heard of LinearFlux, you may soon. That’s because it’s a company with a stellar pedigree whose co-founders were two of the engineers behind the original success of two audio houses you […]
