A new automotive manufacturer called Hackrod wants you to be able to print anything, anywhere. They are using 3D printing, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence to do all this, and this project has been successful.
They have created a beautiful speedster, La Bandita. The company says a customer is able to design the machine of their own dreams. You start with a sketch before moving on and seeing your artwork become a virtual design. Through a set of VR goggles, you can then preview this design in a virtual space.
Once you've settled on a final design, Hackrod will use 3D printing to fully realize the shape and style of your car. To show that they are serious, the skin of La Bandita is made from a one-piece aluminum structure 3D-printed from 2319 aerospace alloy.
More intriguing is the fact that the chassis is designed around feedback fed into a so-called AI system.
