Bolid is a futuristic design by Christoph Proessler for an automated tractor aimed at aiding with one of the most labor intensive human trades: farming. [easyazon-link asin=”B00542NVDW” locale=”us”]GPS[/easyazon-link] and CPU control systems allow a farmer to control multiple Bolid tractors simultaneously, bringing down the required labor, time, and cost allowed by current technology.
With a team of Bolids on his side, the modern farmer no longer has to manually operate each tractor in service. He tends to his Bolids from upon a personal helicopter unit that flies him around his vast fields. He can control his Bolids from the helicopter and can also dock onto a single Bolid to manually drive it. Once his Bolids are set straight and are off to work, he can fly off to check on the rest of the farm or maybe even to take a nap. Disclaimer: Serious Wonder does not endorse sleeping while operating your automated vehicles in our future farms and cities.
While Bolids are based on modern technologies its shape is actually informed by a image of a pulling bull. This classic symbol of power is melded with modern design aesthetics to present an imposing yet elegant machine. It is quite exactly as it looks: hugely powerful and as futuristic (perhaps more) as your computer.
Much like its design-sake and great-great-great grandfather of farm labor, the Bolid becomes the workhorse of the[easyazon-link asin=”1248516281″ locale=”us”] future farm[/easyazon-link]. It’s easily controlled (arguably much more than a pulling bull is), doesn’t get tired, and is capable of tasks that can now be accomplished only by at least one machine operator. With the right automation programming, farmers could have Bolid working through the night out in the fields when the rest of the workforce sleeps. The possibilities are endless and potential is high.
Bolid is exactly what we look for in a futuristic design. It meets an incredibly important need and pushes human capabilities to the future. It doesn’t hurt that it’s incredibly cool looking as well. We here at Serious Wonder wouldn’t mind seeing Bolids out in the fields and farms of the 21st century.
With a world population only growing, its no mystery that we’ll need to find ways to maximize [easyazon-link asin=”159558790X” locale=”us”]food production[/easyazon-link] around the globe. The Bolid is not only incredibly efficient in the fields, it also saves farmers and field workers from hours of backbreaking labor. Farmers are free to tend to other business as Bolids work their fields, and there is always other business to be tended to on a farm.
