GOOGLE RIDE SYSTEM

Google Ride is a mobility concept for 2025 that aims to provide a thoughtful, accessible, AI-driven public transportation system that utilizes riders’ data to provide more personalized experiences. Based on Rider's preferences, the interior contextualizes between fully seated and fully standing modes to prioritize comfort or efficiency.

The video to the left was drawn from the concept by Jon Hsiung and myself, and animated by Kim Cherry Bomb. We collaborated and directed the short over a two month period.

With this project, I set my sights on three things: create a band of characters for SpaceX's program, illustrate some of the challenges that the Interplanetary team would face with their first time on Mars, and design a vehicle to tackle those problems. A huge fan of sci-fi and fantasy media, I had a lot of fun with this project and with the entertainment design aspect of it.
