Called The Flake Project, this futuristic car features an outer skin that’s composed of carbon fiber flakes that can be adjusted while driving. That’s right, “if you want to go fast, all the flakes lie flat, but when you turn, all the flakes on one side of the car will stand up, helping lock the car down to the road.” Video after the break.

. The Project Flake car also has what the designer calls D-Wheels, which are made out of twelve independently extendable leg-things, allowing for an adjustable contact surface, like the spoke wheels in Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash.
