The Kyocera Moeye Concept is about as bonkers as its name suggests

    And it's also kinda cute

    Kyocera is a Japanese tech company that specializes in printers, mobile phones, solar cells and LCDs and naturally... they've made a concept car. What a time to be alive. They call it the Moeye Concept and it's essentially a tech exercise to see what works and what doesn't.

    The Kyocera Moeye is designed as a so-called "MaaS" vehicle, it stands for Mobility-as-a-Service, which means it's a car that you can't drive, basically, and you just use it to go from A to B while doing whatever else you want or need to do. It's equipped with a plethora of Kyocera's products, including a 3.9-ft wide screen, 3D holographic LCD displays, Ceraphic LED lighting and even a transparent cockpit using optical camouflage technology.

    It also features something called Kyoto Opal artificial jewelry on the door cards, which sounds cool, and a tactile technology known as a ‘Haptivity’, which replicates the feeling of pushing an actual button on the virtual dashboard.

    Cosmetically, the shape and angles are heavily influenced by design elements from the 1930s with a certain classic car je-ne-sais-quoi that kinda works. I don't know if they're serious about it and I don't know that they're actually thinking about giving it an engine and making it road legal. Probably not. But it's still cool.

    • Looks like an old car with some modern cues on the outside. Kind of like it but don’t know about the upper and lower intake, probably could style that more gracefully.

    • It looks like a classic car, but very slightly butchered, I can’t quite put my finger on it

    • Tries a bit too hard and falls on its face imo. People who don't like old cars should probably stay away from trying to make modern cars look classic, it just never works.

    • This thing really gives me some hardcore SAAB 93 vibes

    • Why are there features for drivers in a car that one does not drive?

      If I wanted to get from AtoB 'as a service', all I want is a cheap price at the times I want.
