One of my favorite pastimes when I was still living in my hometown was off-roading. A few of my friends had beefed up trucks so we would go find the craziest trails we could and plow through them. One of the big concerns always however was rolling the vehicle or causing some serious damage. Well, I think I would feel completely safe doing anything in the Structural Skin Off-Road Vehicle.
Designed by Chu Hyung Kwon, the Structural Skin Off Road Vehicle was built with a near indestructible core and then covered with a tough but flexible frame using a combination of materials including Aerogel and carbon/kevlar to make it resistant to nearly any type of impact. Looks like I've got my Saturday planned!
