Design the “Skin” for the IMTS Car
IMTS 2012 will run for six days (September 10-15) in Chicago. During that time, an automobile will be built from the ground up at the Emerging Technology Center. The prototype for this car will be touring the country ahead of the show—and could be wearing the decorative, graphic “skin” that you designed. A design competition for this skin starts February 7.
A completed Rally Fighter identical to the one under construction at the show will also be on display. To be built by Local Motors at its own micro-factory this spring, this car will travel to various events promoting IMTS until it arrives in Chicago in September. To give the IMTS community a taste of collaborative manufacturing in anticipation of the show, a competition is being held to design the graphic skin that will be applied to this pre-built car. The competition begins February 7. Participants will have two weeks to submit their ideas. Voting for the top three designs will begin on February 22. Among other prizes, the designer of the winning skin will receive $1,050. Click here for more information.
