Making its debut at the Automotive Next Industry Fair in Tokyo, the egg-like ULV （Ultra Lightweight Vehicle), one-person electric car offers us a rather comical view of what sustainable city transportation may look like in the near future.
Flying cars seem like a downright-terrible idea. After all, if people can't manage to deal with driving cars without getting into accidents while texting, how would they handle their own plane?
You know, you'd think that ridable spider robots would be one-of-a-kind, yet here we are with our second ridable spider robot in just one month. Sure, the first one might look a bit more tough and intimidating than today's, but that's not what its all about.
