Mini Cooper Camping Concepts

MiniCooperCampingConceptsHeaderMini is making the most of the summer season by introducing three incredible concept cars specially designed for campers—though you can’t buy any of them yet.

The most amazing is probably the Mini Cowley Caravan, an adorable trailer that comfortably sleeps two and comes with a twin-burner gas stove; a water tank with pump and sink; and a solar panel that charges the on-board battery, with a 230-volt connection that powers a fridge, TV and audio equipment.

MINI’s Vision Is Not so… Mini!

To have a vision means to look towards the future and picture it in a way that others cannot imagine. The future is always unwritten, but that doesn’t mean that it will stop some people from trying to imagine it, to capture it in the grasp of their imagination and to try to make it a better place for all of us. Martin Luther King had a vision, for instance. His words are legendary: “I have a dream!”. Unfortunately, he didn’t live enough to witness his dreams and visions coming true. Leaders of the world ought to have a vision as well; especially in these times of uncertainty we live in since the dawn of the economic crisis. Do they really have? Well, that is certainly a matter of debate!

Having a Vision involves being optimistic & creative.

Having a vision also involves being optimistic and creative, opposite to envisioning dystopias and disaster. The easiest thing to “predict” for the future is potential ecological disasters or other terrible things about the world we live in. And unfortunately, many people are often tempted by apocalyptic prophecies and gloomy images of an uncertain future. Just take a look on how many movies about the end of the world have been made in the last years! Too many for my taste, might I add!

The hard thing is to envision a future that will make our lives better, as it would also involve much more input of energy and good will into building it and making it happen. And just like some great historical figures managed to envision positive changes, whether these changes happened or not, there are also some others that struggle hard to make our lives better in a more modest, still important, way. Take the designers of the MINI for example; their MINI Vision that was recently presented to the world brings an image of an enjoyable and playful future to us.

Personalization is the key. The MINI Vision will offer the Driving Experience Control which will turn your MINI into a personal object of desire. The driver will have the chance to change the colors and the atmosphere of the car by simply pressing a button! Don’t tell me that you don’t remember that there was a time when we dreamt of these to happen! Pressing a button and turning everything the way you like it… Well, apparently this time has finally come and today you can simply make it happen!

The MINI Vision

If you can’t wait till MINI introduces its vision of the future of cars, there is always a MINI Cooper for sale now that will satisfy your needs and desires as you will keep an eye open towards the very near future. The future is almost here and now: a car’s interior to change at a press of a button! In the MINI Vision in particular, colors can be changed immediately depending on your mood and only. A special feature would be the “MINI Disco” floor, by the use of which you will be able to change the colors, light and forms around you. What is more, you will have the option to “play” with the car’s central display: you can choose between the classic analogue style and a futuristic 3D look. However, something tells me that most of us would have gone for the latter option, after all! Is there anyone actually that isn’t looking forward towards a 3D future? Just think of the movies; there is no going back from the revolution of the 3D, right!?

The presentation of the MINI Vision was in the form of a virtual 3D hologramme, enhancing in this way the expectations of a MINI that incorporates 3D technology. The MINI vision is certainly stands for a new identity for the car: a more and more personalized car, as a prolongation of your own self. Individuality matters not only on the way we decorate our houses and choose to dress ourselves. It matters on anything we wish to own and more or less anything we feel attached to or connected with. Till now it was quite easy to choose the color of our car; these days will be over soon, as the new generation of cars such as the MINI Vision might take us, at last, to a reality where our own cars will be that place with a disco floor and a kaleidoscope of colors, in the shades or our own dreams.

In other words, prepare yourself for the drive of your life! Each mile will bring you joy!
