Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept Car - Want!

Posted about 12 hours ago by Photo_50_thumb Meg Strout to The Misadventures Of Meg Strout

Mercedes Biome a strange concept car that is designed to be grown from seeds. The designers envision that lab-grown car being made from a non-existent material named BioFibre, a material that is lighter than plastic and stronger than steel.

If used in a car, the car would weigh around 875.5 pounds and would also be entirely biodegradable.

Since BioFibre can be grown in a lab, Mercedes has been toying with the idea of growing its very own car based on the idea of symbiosis. Symbiosis in nature represents seamless efficiency between key players.

The idea is that the vehicle would collect energy from the sun and store it within the bonds of a fuel alternative, the only by-product of which is oxygen, appropriately nicknamed BioNectar4534.

The car would work with nature, and Mercedes has already developed technology to retrofit trees with receptors, which would allow us to harvest their excess solar energy into BN4534.

This initiative is suppose to be incentive to plant more trees and collect more energy to create a self sustaining example of symbiosis.

Apply those concepts to a car and the BIOME would not hurt the environment or be wasteful in any way, kind of like a "partnership with nature."

"The interior of the BIOME grows from the DNA in the Mercedes star on the front of the vehicle, while the exterior grows from the star on the rear," Mercedes-Benz explained.

But with the strong movement towards greener technology, perhaps the BIOME does stand a chance in the competitive automotive industry.
