Anyone wondering where the plastics economy is headed (c'mon, we know you're out there) need only check out what students from London's Royal College of Art's Vehicle Design program have been up to. The smarties across the pond recently completed a GE-sponsored project, PLASTicon, in which they created prototypes using various cutting-edge polymers and such. Their concepts, targeted to specific buyers and markets, suggest a future world where a driver will sit under a simulated starry sky, in a car he's designed himself, which can change color depending on its temperature. Yes, the future will be psychotropic.
