Driving is a chore. Sure, there are stretches of roads that are pleasant, and there are cars so slick that piloting them feels both graceful and powerful, but most of the time, commuting in traffic and controlling a machine is a tedious task. Etos, a concept car from Swiss automaker Rinspeed, wants drivers to enjoy the experience of travel again. To that end, their car has a landing pad for a drone on the back, so drivers can fly around while they’re on the road.
How can anyone pilot a drone while driving? As envisioned, the car can switch into a self-driving mode, so the driver can instead enjoy the experience hands free. Press a button and the steering wheel slides away.
