Every few years, some automaker, as a publicity stunt, will pick an art school at random and ask hipsters to design Cars of the Future™. Invariably, they’ll get back a half-dozen drawings of glass boxes on wheels filled with trees, each accompanied by a paragraph or two of utterly meaningless, postmodern buzzword salad explaining how clever they think they are. The Swiss tuning company, Rinspeed, actually went a step further and built one. It debuted at CES, but now we have to look at it again in Geneva. Those jerks. At least you don’t have to read the press release as I did.
