Volkswagen Optism Optical Illusion Car Looks Like a Toy

by Conner Flynn

Designer Sangwoo Lee has come up with a clever Volkswagen concept car that simultaneously looks awesome and at the same time a little silly. It reminds me of one of those Hot Wheels cars I had when I was a kid.

This radical design was inspired by optical art and visual kinetics and it is called the Volkswagen Optism. Those horizontal slats are designed to make the car look different from different angles.

I’m not sure how aerodynamic this design is with all of those slats, but it is unique – I’ll give him that. I also wonder if this “optical illusion” would distract drivers and trick their eyes, causing mayhem on the road. And by mayhem I do mean that guy from the car insurance commercials. Stay away from that guy. Somehow I don’t think we will be seeing this one on the road anytime soon.
