National Geographic Takes Exploration Into the Future

Humans have been obsessed with exploring the land, air and sea for hundreds of years, but this design for National Geographic's 2035 ZAIRE Concept exploration vehicle will be redefining where and how we photograph our adventures too.

Propelled by a magnetic wheel system and designed for extreme terrains, the 2035 ZAIRE looks like something out of a science fiction movie, or Halo for that matter. But one of the most interesting things about car designer Dong Man Joo's plans is that this concept vehicle's dimensions and features have been made specifically with National Geographic's capable photography crew in mind.

Crafted in the "hexagonal direction of greenhouse," the 2035 ZAIRE Concept exploration vehicle will allow for many more-- and some previously impossible--angles and directions to be easily captured, while keeping the 5-member crew safe.
