Jaroslaw Koziel, 25, was born and raised in Czestochowa, Poland. He received a Master of Science Degree at Czestochowa University of Technology in Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science.

He likes to create things that have the ability to take our perception to a higher level, things that can have a positive emotional impact on us.

He has taken part in the Microsoft technology competition called “Imagine cup”. In 2007 and 2008, his team was selected as one of 30 finalists from all over the world.
In 2008, he was selected to the final 29 designers at the “5th Peugeot Design Competition”.


Three wheels suspension gives an original way of moving for the MAGLEO. The wheels are designed in a form of a sphere and they are showing an innovative character of the car. In the rubber layer of the wheel there are set units equipped with magnetic properties. Those units are also put inside the fenders of the car. Between the units in the wheel and the fender a magnetic field is generated to stop or move the wheel – that is how the car moves.

MAGLEO is propelled by electric energy, by three cells. The car is equipped with three small engines. Every cell and engine is put near the wheel to improve the center of balance.

Every calculation from magnetic units, sensors, engines and cells are sent to the main computer. That information is analyzed all the time so the driver can control the car in the best way.

MAGELO has a beautiful streamlined form that gives the impression of movement even when the car stops. The glassy roof makes an impression of space, closeness with external environment. The big front and back lights are an extension of emotions that are going out of the form.
