If the word “eccentricity” had to take a shape, then it would probably take the form of this rickety, skeletal thing (which actually happens to be a driving vehicle). Called EX, the shortened version of the modified word “excentricity,” this vehicle can achieve a speed of 30 km/hr and is powered by two 18-volt-screwdrivers.
So how does this part bicycle (see the wheel), part I-don’t-know-what-to-call-it, thing work? The driver is supposed to lie headlong along the vehicle; there is a special movable joint that helps fit the driver’s weight into the curve of the vehicle. Steering is done, not by the handlebars, but by the spine-shaped joint in the middle of the vehicle – you have to use your entire body for moving it. Lastly, in a stroke of genius – the design already defies all established traditions – all the mechanical parts are left uncovered, which gives the vehicle its skeletal look.
