Even with all our technology and breakthrough inventions, we still look at mother nature for inspiration. Thats what Haishan Deng did when he designed the Chameleon Truck.
This bionic cargo transport wonder utilizes an innovative segmented body that remarkably resembles that of a centipede. This enables the truck to adjust its size to the cargo load. The resilient soft tarpaulin shelled body is strong enough to protect its cargo but also absorbs impacts in case of accidents. As an added benefit it also saves fuel since the truck's weight is slashed in half.
Another innovative design feature is the drive cockpit which cranes over its cargo instead of being built into the frame like most vehicles today. This enables automated front loading without the need for additional support.
I would love to see this one in action. Lucky driver!
