Nissan's Power Wall replaces clay models

Heather Sparks

Nissan Power WallAfter taking a look at their puffy aluminum designs for 2005, it's no surprise Nissan invested big bucks in a new-fangled design review room for checking out their prototypes. The centerpiece of the room is a 5.5 meter-wide "power wall" which can display life-size car designs in three-dimensions using a complex twin projector computer system (it's even able to rotate the designs 360-degrees so they can be examined from all angles). The room also has the added bonus of helping replace the expensive, time time-consuming method of building life-size clay models with something that is a little more likely to impress the ladies.
