    1. Good luck driving that little thing with record-breaking snowfall (thanks to climate change)
    2. Mortality rate in car accidents: 100% (being crushed like a bug)
    3. Good thing is, if you run out of air, you can manually push it (unlike your SUV)

    I'm going to get one when it costs $5000.

    They should design a car that feeds off of Los Angeles's general insipid intelligence and cocaine personality. There's a lot more of that than air.

    Anyway, this is one of the first of it's kind q1w2e3, so DUH of course it's not up to par with the other cars. But give it another 10 years and it will make significant improvements. It's already better than the shit GM and Ford is putting out today.

    A lot of design improvements need to be made both in safety and backup systems, but I can see that being a viable means of transportation [in urban areas] eventually.

    I can see that too, but just I just don't expect to use it for 1/3 of the year when a blizzard can cover it in just 15 minutes.
    Would be perfect in California or Florida (hint: ArtDeco).

    That's where backup systems would come in handy.
    It has an electrical system, so a small heater system could easily be added to dehumidify the air and help with cold weather conditions. icon_wink.gif
