50 years from now, that's what a car would look like (well, at least that's what the guys at Mercedes believe). Here is the link to the story.

If the look isn't enough to intrigue you, well the car is supposed to be capable of SELF REPAIR. Personally, I think that's pushing it a bit, but then again, since self diagnose is possible, then why not repair. Perhaps, it will house spare parts somewhere within the body.... or maybe the guys over at Merc VISUALIZED this car, without any spare parts.

Inspired by Star wars?? R2D2 riding along in the hood!!! or alternatively something like nanobots replicating and taking the form and function of the part required.. hmm Michael Crichton would love this shit.

Ohhh and it gets cooler. One can actually change the design of the car. No, I dont mean taking it to the bodyshop. You choose how you want the car to look like, and the car acquires that design and it's stored in some KEY FOB (no idea).

The car is supposed to be made of micro metallic particles, controlled by magnetic fields, and that's what allows you to change the design of the car (without taking it to the bodyshop).

hmmmm .. I think they took the VISION a bit too far.... but then, who knows - Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.
