PostSubject: Futuristic Bubble Car    Sun Jan 09, 2011 3:14 pm



Ride along with us inside GM's EN-V (Electric Networked Vehicle), a tiny two-seater with a 40-mile range that whisked us around a hotel ballroom in smooth, quiet comfort.

The little two-seater, employing the same balancing-act technology as the Segway scooter, sheds the two-wheeled scooter's nerdy Mall Cop image for a Pac-Man-esque bubble design.

It was a hoot to take this egg-shaped hotrod for a spin inside a controlled environment, but we're not quite sure how it would do on the mean streets of the real world — say, pitted against a giant SUV.

But so what? Maybe the future this precocious car occupies doesn't include SUVs.

That said, it gets even more sci-fi: The EN-V has an autonomous mode, where you can sit back, texting and enjoying your morning coffee while its GPS-driven navi system takes care of the driving for you. Sounds great, but GM wasn't demonstrating that feature to us quite yet. We'll believe that when we see it.

Didn't we already see a bubble car like this in a Woody Allen movie? Maybe so, but this cute conveyance is not available for sale yet -- it's a concept vehicle thus far -- but it feels refined enough to hit the streets (or at least a golf course) before too long.
