Self-Driving GM EN-V May Change Transportation, Still Looks Funny

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6EFJ3862Ys
Alright, I’ll be honest – last time I wrote about the GM EN-V vehicle, I ridiculed it for its rather, um, ‘unique’ look . And I stand by that. It looks… odd.

But now that we get to see a video of a prototype in action – and hear one of its designers extol its benefits – it’s hard not to be impressed by the overall concept (if not the design).

The vehicle is meant to carry a single person and uses a series of sensors and GPS technology to move itself around. What the designer in the clip envisions is entire areas that are car-free, and instead use these vehicles to create a futuristic, environmentally friendly utopia in which people have no design sense (heh).

Still, I can imagine many major city centers that would benefit from less cars if people could have access to safe, robotic transportation like this. And, in all seriousness, if they can do something about that design – we may get a little closer to solving and environmental and gridlock woes.
