Domino's Teams With Local Motors For Ultimate Pizza Delivery Vehicle

Domino's Teams With Local Motors For Ultimate Pizza Delivery Vehicle

Sometimes it takes the sordid mind of the great collective to come up with truly inspiring designs. Local Motors knows this better than most. With its crowd-sourced design model, Local Motors came out with the truly unique Rally Fighter.

Domino's has decided to team up with Local Motors to see what the collective can come up with in terms of the "Ultimate Delivery Vehicle." Help ensure your pie is delivered in style by designing the perfect transport vehicle.

Unfortunately, the "from the wheels up" designation indicates that Domino's is thinking inside the box. To me, the best type of pizza delivery vehicle wouldn't be wheeled at all; it'd be some sort of teleportation device that puts a piping hot slice of pizza in my hand seconds after I hit "submit" on my order. It'd also be connected to a pizzeria other than Domino's.

The contest, which began on Monday, challenges participants to work out the exterior, packaging, interior and surfacing. Domino's plans to award more than $50,000 in prizes to those participants.

"The Local Motors Community of over 18,000 enthusiasts, established in the principles of open source and co-creation, generates vehicles of the future," said Jay Rogers, Local Motors CEO and co-founder. "We are excited to partner with Domino's Pizza to design a worldwide, game-changing delivery experience for its customers by co-creating the Ultimate Delivery Vehicle."

Short of a teleportation device from a local Domino's competitor, I'd say that any delivery vehicle should be lightning fast and burly enough to deliver to rough, distant locations. An on-board oven to cook pizzas on the go and keep them fresh and hot would also be essential.

The contest will include several stages and run through February. It is being supported by a national ad campaign. You can find out more information and get involved at ultimatedeliveryvehicle.com.
