This winged, futuristic car concept is called the Wind Light Vehicle, named so because of its three possible modes of movement. The WLV uses either the wing on the hood, the three electric-powered tires or all three to move like a windsurfer.

The novel and innovative concept kite car, which was designed by Tsung-Ho Wang, Min-Gyu Jung and Sung-Je Do, harnesses the wind's power for locomotion, but for those stiller days, passengers can use the motored wheels.

Implications - Although it is not yet a functional innovation, the kite car concept is exciting to techies with hope for the future of travel. The machine is ridden with infinite design possibilities, with fans of the idea hoping for a wookie-made skycar.
