  5. 5. What is the World Like in 2065? You and a partner are going to design a vehicle for the future. But, before you start designing, you need to consider the world for which you are designing. Read through the following three “alternate realities” for 2065. Pick one reality. Use the “alternate reality” description, and what you can infer about the world based on that description, to help design the vehicle of the future Alternate Reality “A” The year is 2065. The air, water, and soil have been severely damaged by pollution. Smog causes many breathing problems and diseases; people wear masks to help with breathing. The life expectancy is shorter than in 2015. It is very difficult to grow crops for eating due to poor soil and weather conditions. Crops are grown in large industrial buildings. Fresh food, like fruits and vegetables, is much more expensive. Most people eat processed foods that are made using chemicals. It is harder and more expensive to take care of livestock. As a result, most people do not eat meat because it is too costly. Jobs are few, and many people are homeless. Most of the jobs that are available involve working in factories recycling water or manufacturing food. Even with an education, people cannot find work. As a result, fewer people go to college. Many people drop out of high school early and try to find a job. The literacy rate has dropped to 65%. There is a thriving black market for “hard to get materials.” Many people who cannot find work make money selling forbidden or hard-to-get items on the black market. Alternate Reality “B” The year is 2065. There is a focus on taking care of the earth and the environment. Plastic is no longer made or used to store materials. Instead, people use plant-based materials to store items. The air is very clean, the drinking water is improved, and most people eat fresh vegetables and fruits. While livestock is still grown for food consumption, the farms are clean and the animals receive quality care. As a result, meat is more expensive and people do not each as much meat in 2065 as they did in 2015. Everyone recycles. Clothing, building materials, storage materials, etc. are all recycled. There is an emphasis on not wasting any resources. Because of the emphasis on caring for the environment, many people work on farms and/or parks wherein the preservation of the land is primary. There are a wide variety of jobs in which people work, however, and there is an emphasis on developing technologies that help sustain the earth and the inhabitants of earth. The life expectancy is much longer than in 2015, and many people live past 100. Since the life expectancy has improved, there are more people on the earth than ever before. There is a struggle to provide quality housing that is not damaging to the environment. Housing is very expensive, and families are encouraged to share housing with other families to both help offset the cost of housing and to create more housing opportunities. Alternate Reality “C” The year is 2065. World War III ended in 2045 with multiple nuclear attacks on five continents. Twenty percent of the world’s population was lost. As a result, there is massive radiation exposure to people, animals, plants, water, and the environment. Crops and livestock cannot be safely eaten due to mutations from radiation exposure. Food is processed using different chemical compounds in factories. The resulting “food” is bland and does not taste good, but it is the only available food source. After the war, people rioted in response to food shortages worldwide. This caused the collapse of many countries; some “countries” are still without leadership and are run by various crime syndicates. The countries that still have governments enforce strict curfews and laws in order to prevent hostile takeovers by enraged citizens. As a result, crime is at an all-time high, and it is a very dangerous world in which to live. Due to the radiation exposure and high-crime issues, the life expectancy is only 45 years. With the loss of population, there was a loss of education. Many of the skills and technologies available in 2015 are no longer available in 2065. Wifi no longer works, and most families do not own a computer. Very few people attend school and the literacy rate is 60%.
  6. 6. Data Sheet Facts About Vehicles in 2015 Predictions About Vehicles in 2065 average car weighs about 4,000 lbs Cars will be lighter about 65% of the makeup of a car is steel Might be made of Dualumin about 30% of the makeup of a car are interior parts Might be made of Fiberglass about 5% is fabric for seats and floors Might be made of Carbon Fiber 2% of cars are electric Most cars will be electric 0% of street-legal cars self-drive 75% of cars will self-drive Average cost of vehicle: $31,252 Average Cost of Vehicle: ??? Cost to make a car 2015: $9,378 = Cost of parts: $7,132 + Cost of labor: $2,246 Cost of vehicle: $31,252 = Base cost of vehicle: $9,378 + Dealership mark-up: $17,500 + Salesman Commission: $4,374 Duralumin – a hard, light alloy (a mix of metal and another element) of aluminum with copper and other elements. Easily corrodes (is destroyed or weakened) with water exposure. Fiberglass- a type of fiber reinforced plastic where the reinforcement fiber is specifically glass fiber. The glass fiber may be randomly arranged, flattened into a sheet (called a chopped strand mat), or woven into a fabric. It cracks and breaks easily when struck violently (like in a car accident). Carbon Fiber- a material consisting of thin, strong crystalline filaments of carbon, used as a strengthening material, especially in resins and ceramics. It is 10 times stronger than steel, and 4 times lighter than steel. It takes longer to make and is more expensive to use. Material Cost in 2015 Duralumin (requires 1 extra coat of paint) $175 a pound Fiberglass $3 a pound Carbon Fiber $10 a pound Steel $0.28 a pound Plastic $2.80 a pound 1 coat of paint (avg car requires 5 coats) $566 a coat Fiber $0.93 a pound Fuel / Power Source Cost per Gallon in 2015 Gasoline $3.52 Electric $0.04 Compressed Air $0 Biodiesel $2.90 Hydrogen $0.17 Gasoline – hard on the environment, explosive, resource will eventually run out Electric – on average, electric vehicles cost 20% more than gas-based vehicles Compressed Air – the max speed for vehicles that use compressed air is 25 miles per hour BioDiesel – Recycled vegetable oil, good for environment, hard to harvest (get from restaurants etc.) Hydrogen-environmentally friendly, highly flammable, susceptible to fire and explosion

  8. 8. Advertisement Pre-Planning Name: ______________________________________ Once your car is finished, you will take a picture of it and edit it in a photo-editing program. You will take this image and turn it into a print advertisement for your car. Did you know the writing on printed ads is called, “copy?” Today, you are going to create some copy for your car ad. Answer the questions below to begin the process of making copy for your ad. If you need some inspiration, check out the car print ads in this drive 1. Who is your customer? Describe this person or groups of people. 2. What emotion do you want your car to convey? Why? 3. What do you want the body of your copy to say?(Remember, when you answer this question to pretend as if you are talking to your customer: Your language should be lively, interesting, and engaging!). Stumped for what this should look like? Click here. 4. What will your “call to action” say? This is the final part of your ad that encourages the reader to do something (for example, at the end of a jewelry ad, the line might read: “Drop by our store today to take advantage of this one-time, great savings!”) 5. What will your contact information say? Consider what your future is like. . .How do people communi- cate? They may use contact other than phones etc.
  9. 9. What Would Your Future Vehicle Cost If It Was Made Today? Part I: Assumptions -Assume your vehicle weighs 2,000 pounds -Assume 65% of your vehicle is the exterior material -Assume 30% of your vehicle is the major interior parts -Assume 5% of your vehicle is the seat and floor covering 2,000 x .65 = _______________________(E)__(how many pounds of exterior material) 2,000 x .30 = _______________________(I)__(how many pounds of major interior parts) 2,000 x .05 = _______________________(S)__(how many pounds of seat and floor covering) Part II: Equating the Individual Costs of your Vehicle 1. Vehicle exterior material_____________________________________________Cost per lb__________________ 2. Vehicle major interior parts material ___________________________________Cost per lb__________________ 3. Vehicle seat and floor material ________________________________________Cost per lb_________________ Total Cost of Exterior Material of Vehicle = (E) x Cost of exterior material per pound = x Total Cost of Major Interior Parts of Vehicle = (I) x Cost of material pound = x Total Cost of Seat and Floor of Vehicle = (S) x Cost of material per pound = x Total Cost of Vehicle Paint = 566 x 5 (or 6 if you used Duralumin) = x Part III: Equating the Total Cost of Your Vehicle Total Cost of Exterior Material + Total Cost of Interior Parts + Total Cost of Seat & Floor + Total Cost of Paint = Total Cost + + + = Part IV: Cost of Powering Your Vehicle Cost of Power Source / 1 Gallon x # of Gallons Vehicle Holds = Cost to Power Vehicle x =
