The Nissan Actic which was debuted at the 2004 North American
International Auto Show was developed by a team of designers
at Nissan's design studio in California.
The Actic is a futuristic design incorporating many novel
features. The interior glass roof panels display video
images of the outside environment. Intelligent door handles
sense a nearby hand and electronically present themselves
to the user. The Actic also features a key fob containing
all the drivers interior preferences and settings, such
as AC and audio tracks and settings, the device also holds
e-mail and navigation information.
Interestingly many production cars now feature ports for
docking iPods and other removable audio devices - a feature
the Actic concept showed off.
Nissan designed the exterior of the Actic with smooth
uninterrupted lines, as such the Actic lacks any B-pillars
giving a seamless look to the side glass.
The large diameter aluminium wheels are designed after
running shoes, and the 5-spokes run to the very outer
rim of metal.
Nissan displayed a trailer with the Actic that was specially
designed for the concept. It can be expanded when stationary
and features inflatable walls, when erect it is capable
of sleeping three.
