THE CAMAKURUMA HAS AN INTERIOR LIKE IGLOO
developed by toyota in collaboration with hoshino resorts, and with interiors designed by the nippon design center, the camakuruma camping car is a new vehicle concept that wants skiers to park their car next to the slopes. its name is derived from the Japanese words Kamakura which means igloo and Kuruma which translates to car.
INTERIOR USES TOYOTA’S 2.5D PRINTING TECHNOLOGY
interiors use Toyota’s 2.5D printing technology, which results in a distinctive three-dimensional aesthetic. technology can express different designs, textures and tactile sensations without using a mold. ‘we are developing a world where you can easily switch between city and indoor mobility as you wish,’ comments the official press release.
the interior, the logo and the name of the camakuruma was produced by the nippon design center. inside, 2.5D printing technology has been used to create the feeling of snow, allowing users to enjoy a snowy world. the technology gives the leaf surfaces a temperature gradient that expands them due to heat, allowing free height control.
