Rinspeed presents the clever urban “Oasis” runabout at the CES in Las Vegas and the NAIAS in Detroit in January 2017
US Company Techniplas, a specialist for cognitive and networked products, developed the multi-functional rear window. It integrates not only the usual lights at the back of a car; it also serves as a display panel for the integrated clever micro delivery box. It can even be cooled or heated as needed. As a special touch, the box was sized to fit a power bank form EVA Fahrzeugtechnik, which increases the range of the “Oasis” when circumstances demand.
Alongside colour, shape and material, lighting design is increasingly employed to position leading brands and clearly distinguish one vehicle from another. The car is now an extension of personal brand. “People identify with their car like they do their smart phone—expecting it to be highly customised and personalized”, according to Steffen Reuter, vice president for Innovation and Technology. Light creates atmosphere, enhances familiarity, and conveys a sense of elegance and quality.
The most striking WEIDPLAS-feature of etos you will find at its rear end – a matt glass surface which inconspicuously blends into the overall design as an integrated component – until switched on. A LED matrix hidden under the surface of the glass may welcome the driver by means of personalized graphic designs.
