Shape-Shifting Cars. Finally.

I'm no automobile enthusiast in general, but this is pretty undeniably cool: BMW has built a shape-shifting car with a skin of cloth. The pictures are great, but the video is pure nerd heroin, especially for those who grew up on a diet of Transformers and the like.

It might not be Turbo Teen, but the winking headlights have me sold.

So, the future is here, and it's not a hovercraft, but it is totally awesome. P.S. The hood opening made me uncomfortable.

This is both cool and yet I detect a pronounced S&M vibe from it. Looks like it came right out of a Bjork video.

Well put. I'll watch for it in Matthew Barney's next white powdered horror show.
