The images shown in this visualization experiment are digital artwork created by Lexica.ai, a stable diffusion image search engine. The images created by Lexica artificial intelligencebased on user-provided text prompts, and no image is recreated twice the same.
With all the hype surrounding the reminder maker and digital artwork created by artificial intelligence (AI), we decided to conduct our own image testing. For our effort, we decided to feed the AI simple keywords related to a popular Indian car model and explore the interpretation of the technology. Our tool of choice is Lexica.ai developed by Sharif Shameem and this is where testing takes place.

For our reminder, we wrote ‘Future Mahindra Thar’ and hit create on the Lexica AI website. The image search engine took less than 10 seconds and it quickly returned us 5 completely unique digital artworks. These images are an AI repetition of what a Mahindra Thar What the 4×4 of the future might look like. The photo we found is the best, showing the Thar 4×4 against a canyon backdrop, painted bright yellow.
Our digital Thar also has some interesting details going into it. It was a convertible with the roll cage exposed. It features a sturdy metal bracket on the roof of the passenger cabin complete with LED navigator light bars. The front has a more muscular bonnet and a teardrop shape for the round headlights. On the sides, the Digital Thar has been fitted with flared fenders finished in black and complete with indicator units.
At the lower front, the AI-rendered Thar has what is known as a front bumper that also has a winch. The ride height seems to be higher than the real-life Thar and the wheels are smaller with oversized sand tires. The AI’s incredible attention to detail can be noticed when the tires are deflated, a well-known trick in navigating porous sandy terrain.

Looking back, the fact that the AI depicts a Thar of the future, standing in a barren canyon and built for extremely rugged use, makes us question, was it just a coincidence or a hints about the future itself? Although we hope this image will never come true, we are sure that the Thar will definitely be a good vehicle to go to the end of the world!
