I– just– don’t you think nukes are a bit extreme?
Extreme? What has gotten into you lately? There’s a castle with a frickin’ telescoping laser beam thing on it, the other guys do magic with their gunslinging T-Rex, and we harness the power of a volcano to do half our work while across the fence, our neighbors bake cookies. What happened that made it so only now our bombs give you pause?

Meet the weirdest self-driving car yet

Based on the BMW i3, this is the bizarre, autonomous Rinspeed Budii. And it’s headed for Geneva.

Mercedes-Benz’s new self-driving S-Class and Audi’s self-piloting RS7 are missing just one vital ingredient for ultimate RoboCar kudos: a giant, roof-mounted Frickin’ Laser Scanner. Oh, and tiny, on-board robots.

Yes folks, it’s another concept car from Switzerland’s ‘automotive powerhouse of ideas’, Rinspeed, with a heavily modified, self-driving BMW i3.

Of course, it stopped being an i3 as soon as Rinspeed - makers of such wondrousness as this Microcmax, the Dock+Go, and theiChange - decided to mount its steering wheel upon a giant robotic arm that stays safely stowed away during automated driving, or extends out to the driver (or passenger) should the urge to steer arise.
