Put your speakers on and watch this interesting clip.

Still not sure if it's bullshit or for real. Remains to be seen whether this has practical applications or passes rigourous safety tests. F'example what happens when you remove take out the car battery? Can the emergency services get you out easily if they had to after a bad accident?

Anyway it looks pretty damn slick.

Oh, right. I didn't know that. I only got it from a mate in an email link just beofre Christmas.

Yeah it does sorta look fake, I mean the doors just seem to disappear somewhere and it says the floor pan isn't any higher. Sorta bizarre that. I guess they'd have to build some sort of void under the floor ro receive it else if you'd been driving in the rain the idside of the door would get covered in drips etc.

Oh well, thought it was interesting enough to bring to someone's attention here.

21st century it is.
