Artist Dave Cole converte created a massive music box – “The Music Box” , made out of a 22,000 pound soil compactor machine. Cole stripped most of the weight out of the compactor to make the sculpture more manageable, it still weighs in at 2,000 pounds. It plays ‘The Star Spangled Banner’. The sculpture was commissioned by the Cleveland Institute of Art.
Bemoove is a futuristic urban vehicle with a wild aesthetic that was dictated not by a desire for attention, but by experimenting with material & powertrain options ideal for the city. The ultra-lightweight frame of the trike’s base is carbon fiber, but the real innovation is the inflatable cab that offers safety, shock absorption, & total panoramic views to passengers.
The main steering device is the spherical rubber-Kevlar back wheel, moved by electric engines in any XY-plane direction. Controlled torque is applied to the support-case of this wheel to make the two main frame arms free to swing and accommodate curves and uneven ground. Traction is provided by four rubber-Kevlar tape-shaped tires which rotate independently forward or backward on their guides thanks to four electric motors positioned in the main frame, so as to maximize traction as well as turning radius.
