Photos: 10 mind-bending designs from the Autodesk Gallery in San Francisco

Mercedes-Benz Biome car

Jumpstarting sustainability and social good, Autodesk, makers of Autocad software, have put some of the most innovative projects created with their software on display at their San Francisco gallery.

This concept car from Mercedes-Benz would be built from a biological material that's grown from seeds, called BioFiber. The car would run on a liquid called BioNectar4534, use bioluminescence for headlights, and release oxygen into the air when it runs.
