Yet another car that looks like a teapot

This one’s solved the problem of “getting out of the car” by making the entire thing rotate and then the whole dashboard area open up using some sort of motorised, automatic door opener. The whole opening process takes about 10 seconds, so if it’s raining, bring an umbrella.

They’ve also taken that whole “make the front of the car look like a face” thing a little bit further by having an actual little robot head that looks about the place in front of the steering wheel.

Are Japanese Teenage Girls the saviors of the Auto Industry? Someone’s obviously putting money on it… and to be honest, this one’s just about loopy enough for me to actually like it – although I do think it would be a bit embarrassing to drive.
