Cockpit Halo -----> Toilet Seat

Post by hrm80953 »

After all the design concepts I've seen of this cockpit "halo", does anyone else think it just looks like a very aerodynamic, very expensive toilet seat?

Maybe we should refer to it as the toilet seat from now on :D

Having just removed an image of exactly that from the other thread, I'd advise nobody develops this idea further. Not saying you're wrong, mind you.

View from the cockpit.

I think I might know where the designer got the idea.

Looks like a renault. I think it is a shop job from a poster on another forum.

This is just the "bog" standard version. When developed it will have "soft close" and choice of lids.

The red cast on the underside and thew reflection in front of the steering "device".

It's no longer a wheel. LOL

It is a photoshop by the looks of it, but it's been edited into the Pirelli test car.

That deserves a rimshot
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?
