Microcar of the Future?

The May issue of Popular Science featured an interesting concept car -- titled the "Robotic Commuter Pod". (If you want something to sound cool, put "pod" in its name.)

The article describes the vehicle as similar to the General Motors PUMA concept. (See April 10, 2009 write-up.)

So...what makes it Robotic? According to Popular Science, "Guided by radar, GPS, and car-to-car and car-to-road signals, the vehicle pilots itself, leaving the commuter free to talk on the phone, access the internet, or watch videos on a large transparent OLED screen."

That means you can safely use your iPod in your Commuter Pod. Pods R Us.
