This Whimsical Driverless Car Imagines Transportation in 2059

This design from Dominic Wilcox imagines the future of automobiles in 2059. We love it both for its originality and bold aesthetics (and also for the way it reminds us of the archetypical living room of an American Grandmother in the late 1970s).

From Slate:

The tricked-out Mini prototype has a tortoiselike, multicolored stained glass shell that lifts up to reveal a single bed. The frame was cut with a computer numerical control machine and slotted together. The stained glass was hand-cut and attached to the frame with a meticulous copper foiling technique, also used to make Tiffany lamps, before being connected to the Mini chassis.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
