The word

Bamboo

Rinspeed introduces the Bamboo by first saying you won't like it. They then go on to show how the Bamboo is a platform for showcasing a lot of interesting design ideas for a fun, party-atmosphere vehicle.

The Bamboo is electric, but no specifications are given. Instead, focus is on innovations such as the inflatable roof (removable to be used as a mattress), bamboo-based interior fabric, an HTC tablet PC in the dashboard, and the creme de la creme? The "mood update" front grille that the driver can program to show their current "status" (mood).

And so ...

In all, another fun and interesting concept from Rinspeed.
