15. Utility Kinetic Insect: Buzzing All Over the World

 

The Utility Kinetic Insect was created by Australian team Make Mob—a gang of engineers and designers based in Melbourne. The team was inspired by the resilience of insect life in the harsh Australian climate.

 

The car features electric actuators, which give the mechanical insect a realistic range of articulation. It also houses a DJ booth and lights which pulse in time with the music.
