Although only in a concept stage, the Flake car by designer DaFeng is--for the lack of a better word--cool--or at least it looks really cool! The plan is to cover a vehicle in carbon-fiber pieces with each one connected by carbon nanotubes that will allow the individual scales to adjust the car by creating drag on whatever side the car needs control or to stand up in order to slow it down. See the complete project including a video of the concept car in action at DaFeng's blog. Be sure and check out the wheels, called "D-Wheels" which operate like tank tracks.
