I have been having a difficult time over the past few weeks developing a profile for the Cadillac Studio that I am currently participating in. This is a few select sketches that Have been done trying to develop a concept. I have decided to go with the "wrap" feature illustrated in the first sketch as a way to use some vintage cadillac covered wheel inspiration.
I know what you're all thinking, "how does it turn?" Well, a solution has presented itself in the form of omnidirectional wheels. They are used primairly on forklifts other heavy moving equipment. Each wheel is like a conical gear which spins either clockwise or counter in order to propel the vehicle in the desired direction.
