Lexus creates a fully drivable “origami inspired” cardboard car

To celebrate the skills of its craftspeople, Lexus has created a full-size, drivable cardboard replica of its IS sedan using 1,700 sheets of precision-cut cardboard. Each 10mm thick, the cardboard sheets had to be glued together by hand in sequence with a water-based wood glue, taking 10 minutes to set every time.

The project was carried out by LaserCut Works and Scales and Models using a digital 3D model of the sedan provided by Lexus, and took a total of three months to assemble. The cardboard replica was then mounted atop a steel and aluminum frame with an attached electric motor, thus allowing the car to be driven.

Lexus teases “The Heart Racing Project”, the world’s first car with a heartbeat

Coming soon from Lexus is “The Heart Racing Project.”

Created in collaboration with international advertising agency M&C Saatchi, the project is billed as “the world’s first car with a heartbeat” and will see the conceptual take on the RC F reflecting the driver’s heartbeat thanks to the implementation of biometric technology; by using a heartbeat monitor and sensors attached to the driver, the car can display the pulsating pattern via its exterior paneling.

Check out the teaser above and look for “The Heart Racing Project” to be revealed this Friday, July 24.

Lexus has unveiled its all-new NX compact crossover automobile, strategically positioned to rival the BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA models. Seemingly inspired by the Lexus IS series, the bold design aesthetic is achieved via an array of sharp angles, the brand’s familiar spindle grille, a face lift at the headlights and LED taillights.
The interior sees clean lines throughout and features long stretches of luxurious leather, complemented with either metal or wood trims. Underneath the hood is an unprecedented 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which will be the first Lexus car equipped with a turbocharger. No word yet on the vehicle’s price point, however we understand that the 2015 Lexus NX delivery will include three models – 200t, 200t F Sport and NX 300h.
