Switzerland's iconoclastic design house has done it again, this time with a modular, hot-swappable concept car that's electric and autonomous.
Rinspeed imagines snap-in modules onto autonomous electric "skateboard" chassis.
Business by day...
Romantic (and slightly creepy) party by night.
Rinspeed imagines many standalone uses for the Snap's modular passenger pods, including on-site offices.
Modular concepts like this have been done before, including GM's Autonomy and HyWire showcars from the early 2000s.
Each occupant is treated to three screens that can display onboard content and brought-in personal media.
Deployable caster wheels help move pod modules onto and off the skateboard chassis.
Apparently the Snap can even function as a delivery service drone.
In the future, we'll all be drinking from cool tumblers.
The Snap's pods might even be excellent for wildlife spotting.
Parking should be a Snap, too.
Well, the Snap does kind of look like a greenhouse...
