Ballooning Car Parks

The Helium Parking Concept Offers Personal Blimps for Vehicles

— August 28, 2011 — Autos
Like the pod system seen in the cult classic movie 'The Matrix' that held hosts of humans, the Helium Parking Concept suspends cars high above the ground in a futuristic attempt to accommodate the growing need for more places to park cars. These personal blimplike lots are quite novel and practicable, potentially freeing up tons of urban space, which is sorely needed now rather than later.

Conceived by German designer Nikolay Kolev, the Helium Parking Concept consists of a number of foldable and inflatable structures that fill up with helium to hold cars of varying sizes. These structures are then steered by an autonomous hydrogen propulsion system into an allotted spot. A cheaper proposal than certain other multileveled car parks, the Helium Parking Concept can save a lot of hassle.
Trend Themes
1. Blimplike Parking - The concept of using personal blimps for parking cars presents a disruptive innovation opportunity in the parking industry.
2. Foldable and Inflatable Structures - The use of foldable and inflatable structures for parking offers a disruptive innovation opportunity in the construction industry.
3. Autonomous Hydrogen Propulsion - The implementation of autonomous hydrogen propulsion systems in parking presents a disruptive innovation opportunity in the automotive industry.
Industry Implications
1. Parking - The Helium Parking Concept can revolutionize traditional parking systems, providing an opportunity for disruptive innovation in the parking industry.
2. Construction - The development and implementation of foldable and inflatable structures for parking can disrupt the construction industry by offering a more efficient and flexible solution.
3. Automotive - The integration of autonomous hydrogen propulsion systems in parking can lead to disruptive innovation in the automotive industry by providing a unique and sustainable parking solution.
