live, Daniel Paulin says. Since there is no physical mock-up,
Opticore solutions have given me a great solution to demonstrate my
vehicle for prospective partners. Its very interesting times for the
high end visualization business. With Opticores tools, the boundary
in-between virtual reality and real life is now removed. The quality
has reached a level where many design decisions can be made with out
the need of physical prototypes.

ideas of where automotive are and should develop.
The concept car features several creative solutions both from a
design and a technical perspective.
