GM’s Driverless Concept Car Looks Like A Spaceship, Plus Has Radar And An Iris-Scanner
GM hopes to change the game with this super futuristic self-driving vehicle called the Chevrolet-FNR. This ain’t your creepy uncle’s 1998 Chevy Malibu. This is a visual masterpiece that looks like it’s from another universe.
We lost our collective shit when the super sleek Mercedes F 015 self-driving car was unveiled and self-driving all around San Francisco. But GM’s cutting-edge autonomous concept is just as futuristic in appearance if not more.
The Chevrolet-FNR was unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show, where it wowed the crowds with it’s flowing liquid-metal-looking appearance.
The very TRON-like electric vehicle looks like it just crash-landed on our planet after traveling through across galaxies from an advanced civilization.
It features crystal lasers that generate the headlights and taillights, and has a radar in the roof that scans it’s surroundings to avoid obstacles. There are awesomely strange “dragonfly” doors that swing open upwards in the air.
This futuristic transporter is powered by magnetic hubless electric motors in each wheel, and it can charge wirelessly.
Inside the car, it is brimming with tech. No need to worry about carrying around bulky keys because the car is equipped with an iris scanner (Hopefully if you own this car you never encounter Simon Phoenix from Demolition Man). It has a Siri-like personal assistant to help you map out the best route to your destination. There’s also gesture control to help your lazy ass.
The interior is illuminated by blue light as you sit in mostly mesh chairs which swivel so that you can talk eye-to-eye with your fellow passengers. I imagine that as soon as their is self-driving cars that there will be so many videos popping up of passengers having sex in their autonomous vehicles. You have to try it out at least once right?
Chevy states that the FNR is aimed to create a “unique, intelligent vehicle for tomorrow’s younger consumers.”
The only problem that I see with this car is that it looks too bad-ass to be driverless.
