Bottle Designer Creates Solar Car Prototype

The Welsh designer who came up with the clear, globby-looking Ty Nant plastic water bottle has penned a squarish, transparent vehicle that's powered by that globby-looking hot star thing. We're not exactly sure what we're looking at, but whatever it is will be unveiled at the Salone Del Mobile Milano, an Italian design expo in Milan next week. The designer, Ross Lovegrove, is working on the prototype with corporate sponsors Sharp Solar Europe, Swarovski Optical Laboratories, General Motors, and Turin-based auto protoytyping firm Coggiola. Could we be looking at the 2075 Chevy Impala?
