Outdoor night parties just reached a whole new level this week, thanks to product designer Konstantin Grcic and JBL, who turned an average smart fortwo EQ into a DJ station on wheels.
One might thing that adding a human’s weight some few feet above the rather flimsy-looking machine might topple it over. Somehow, the designer got round that by adding side supports to stabilize the vehicle.
But having a smart from which music is played would have been pretty much like taking any other car to an outdoor barbecue. So some few extra features had to be embedded into the concept.
The smart can generate its own mist, thanks to a fog machine located behind the radiator grille. Light effects of all sorts are achieved thanks to the LED headlamps, a stroboscope fitted inside the car and an LED matrix on either side of the boom.
There are also a few highlights with no real party application, meant only to further attract attention to the smart fortwo EQ: back-lit alloy wheels and an illuminated underbody.
“The smart mobile disco is a great symbol of the smart brand’s links with club culture – a scene that draws people together, forges bonds and brings joy,” said Annette Winkler, smart’s CEO.
“Visionary thinking and a passion to keep questioning the status quo encapsulate smart’s aims and its essential attitude.”
