Futuristic Car Interiors : Lighter, Brighter, More Functional

2013-06-03_165944It is not only in the electric cars of tomorrow that the interiors are set to become feel-good zones with a host of different innovative features. Designers now have, at their disposal, new kinds of textiles and fibre-based lightweight composites that emit light and heat, conduct electricity and even have sensory capabilities. These developments – some of them still ‘hot from the laboratory’ – are meeting with interest from manufacturers of cars, lorries and buses alike. Often still in the research phase and, hence, hardly beyond the prototype stage, never mind in regular production and available for the mass market, they recommend themselves for applications in air, rail and sea travel because of their fantastically useful properties.

What is a “Plasma”?

The first three states of matter are solid, liquid, and gas, and matter transitions from one state to the next by the addition of energy (often in the form of heat). For example, “solid” water is ice and melts into water with the addition of heat (energy). Water is evaporated into a gas with the addition of more heat. Plasma occurs after the gas state, with the addition of more energy. When molecules of the gas are given energy in excess of their ionization potential, electrons are able to escape the electron cloud. This results in a body of positively charged ions and negatively charged electrons. These charged species can be affected by electric and magnetic fields, resulting in the production of additional excited species. Continue reading What is a “Plasma”?
