Hackrod’s La Bandita Aluminum Roadster

A gorgeous speedster born in Virtual Reality.

Although we live in a digital age, some projects really push the boundaries to take us by surprise and to also offer us a glimpse into the near future. The revolutionary “La Bandita” is one of them. The brainchild of California-based company Hackrod, this stunning beauty is the world’s first VR-designed, AI-engineered and 3D printed electric car. Hackrod collaborated with Siemens PLM Software to bring this speedster to life. This innovative concept allows the customer to ultimately become involved in the designing process to create customized vehicles that look awesome and perform beautifully.

The project unsurprisingly employs some state-of-the-art technology and groundbreaking features. Apart from the Siemens PLM NX™ software, the company will also use virtual reality for the design stage and IoT and machine learning to enable the constant improvement of the engineering systems. Finally, the industrial 3D printing stage will allow the company to produce optimized hardware. The body and the cockpit will take shape in VR, while the lightweight chassis will feature aerospace grade aluminum alloy. Designed in part by their owner, the cars will have custom details to make them one-of-a-kind. Currently, Hackrod is working on the first prototype to prove the efficiency of the concept. The next step includes automating key tasks before bringing the 3D printed electric car closer to reality. And to the open road. All Images © Hackrod.
