Shapeshifting Automotive Interior (SAI)

The shapeshifting automotive interior, or SAI was designed to take advantage of programmable and reconfigurable polymers called smart materials. The objective was to design an automotive interior that could change its shape and configuration in a organic way to better meet the needs of the driver and passengers. The concept interior could in theory be programmed to take on any configuration to match any situation. This includes shifting the interior from a single seat-layout to 4 seat layout or a configuration that would allow space for a wheelchair.
