One-man camp

One-man camp

This is compact travelling like you’ve never seen before. And, thanks to a creative vision and some clever software, German designer Cornelius Comanns has brought his bachelor thesis in Industrial Design to life, transforming a Piaggio APE 50 tricycle into a small one man camper. 

“Everything in these pictures is CG [computer graphics] except for obviously the human and the environment with the sheep,” says Comanns on his blog. “The model was built up completely in rhino. Then exported to Bryce where it was textured, set up and rendered. Photoshop was used to create the textures and to correct the final renderings.”
