Car Tech Video: Nissan Pivo 2 Concept

1:12 /

Is this the wackiest car on Earth? Yep. And now with 100% more robot!

[ Music ] ^M00:00:08 [ Background Music ] >> Okay, I' m the first to admit it. I never really got the Pivo, but this is the Pivo2 from Nissan. It hangs on to that rotating body thing--kinda like a princess carousel. It's got this wheels that can rotate 90 degrees. You can get queasy watching this thing drive but what's really amazing on the Pivo2 is that annoying little robot head on the dashboard. Tom Merritt would love this car. I'd rather kill myself to be stuck with that thing on a long ride. The robot gives you navigation advice as you drive. I don't need that from you Mr. Robohead. Even worse, it tries to keep you happy all the time. If it detects that you're stressed out while driving; it will make happy, soothing conversation or if the things are getting sleepy and drifting, it might suggest you pull over to a coffee shop and it will show you that on the navigation screen as well or may be if you're all freaked out on saying, "Man, oh this!" as you try and go through a city traffic, it will say "Let's stop a while for a couple of cocktails. Well, not really but then I might like this car. [ Music ]
