  • Shapeshifters and the Art of Seamless Tailoring

    Let me suggest you tweet this:

    We're in the textile and fabric business, after all. Well, cut-and-sew conquers other industries as well -- now, BMW builds a Shape-Shifting car out of cloth --

    Instead of steel, aluminum or even carbon fiber, the GINA Light Visionary Model has a body of seamless fabric stretched over a movable metal frame that allows the driver to change its shape at will. The car -- which actually runs and drives -- is a styling design headed straight for the BMW Museum in Munich and so it will never see production, but building a practical car wasn't the point.
