OK - I want one, the shell would be interesting, curious about keeping private areas private, but I'm sure the shell in certain areas wouldn't be see through -

great concept though -

WOW - i read the "reviews" on the second link.


My, my, my - their mommies must be PROUD that those folks know all those swear words.

It reinforces how much I appreciate a forum that is nice, generally friendly, and when there IS a dispute it doesn't seem to go THAT horribly negative and... well... just NASTY.

My, my my.

People wouldn't have to bug you about taking a tour...

It has a screen mesh cover "to keep the bugs out".

looks cool! also looks like a lot of stuff to break too. i can see these jamming up while your camping and having a repair person out there to fix it before you can pack up and go home.

Clever.... but only in the sense of clever graphics and ideas. Clearly not in the least practical or realistic, in about a hundred different ways, like a 1950s show car.

Like the show cars, it presumably is meant as marketing for the 'designer' (well, 'graphic artist'), though I'd consider it a sign to steer well clear of him/her.....

Even a windy day could wreak havoc...

But, thanks for posting it, Tim! It's nice to see what's out there (even if still just in conceptual stage).

Surreal - characterized by fantastic imagery and incongruous juxtapositions; "a great concourse of phantasmagoric shadows"--J.C.Powys

No thought to air, water, electricity. Looks nice, hardly realistic. Probably won a design award.

It's the brainchild of a team led by 23-year-old design student Stephanie Bellanger of Paris. Design students are often encouraged to ignore the more mundane aspects of mechanics, construction, materials etc. in order to focus on the possibilities of pure design. Our company has hosted a couple of design contests. We turn the designs over to our engineers and ask, "What parts of this are practical? What parts are possible? What can we use from this?" They usually just laugh, but sometimes we get some great ideas.

Stephanie's "Mobile Mini-House" design was entered in a Minimaousse contest (google it) and won a 'coup de coeur' (honorable mention) award.

It is nothing more than an interesting concept, and as Andrew points out, it is highly unlikely to ever reach any further stage of development.

On the other hand, take a look at this Scarab RV concept, also capable of being pulled by a Mini or a road bike, and scheduled for production this summer.

Tom

PS - Great forum!

What scares me is that all of those respondents seem to think that the thing is real. They haven't even studied the images (two of which clearly show an opaque covering coming from one of the end segments). People don't seem to realize that it's a a flight of fancy, a design student's contest entry.

I had a nice email from Stéphanie Bellanger, one of the design team. You can read more about the Mobile Mini House here.

Now I'm off to look for my old trailer, a 1976 Trillium. Gotta be somewhere in the forum...
