Concept car brings smartphone app model to auto industry

Just as popular the Mini Cooper is essentially the VW Bug of our era, if you're curious as to what the next super-compact car might look like, the Null concept electric vehicle would be an impressive upgrade for the future.

Designed by Jeongche Yoon, the car is unique in that its design was inspired by the popularity of smartphones. The car's rear "docking area" is meant to serve as a kind of port for "applications" (read: car accessories) from various vendors who might create anything from a portable bar stand or a bicycle mount to go with the car. The immense detail and modeling that went into this design is only matched by the amazing video that shows the Null in action, which you can check out below.
