News, but not the serious kind
Sexy new car for the well-heeled?
Blog Guy, I drive to my office, but I can never find a parking space. I know you’ve blogged in the past about innovations in urban parking, but I wonder if there have been any more advancements I can look forward to.
As a matter of fact, yes. A company in India is about to market a car shaped like a shoe, so yo don’t even have to find a space. You just pull up, get out and wear it into work!
Here’s a photo of the prototype. I guess that makes it a phototype.
That sounds too good to be true, Blog Guy! Are there any problems with it?
A few problems, yes. Getting a shoe shine can be pretty expensive.
I can handle that. Any other problems?
Yes, right now it only comes in size 260 extra-wide.
Yeah, I guess that could be a deal-breaker, and I see another one, as well.
Really? What’s that?
I’m a guy.
