Designed and engineered by MIT’s Smart Cities group, this stackable robot car gives compact a new meaning. In addition to being stackable, they are also eco friendly. This “wheel robot” powered car has wheels with integrated motors which can also rotate a full 360 degrees while moving. You won’t find seatbelts in this car becuase responsive seats, also called “fingers”, hold a person back during an accident. Now the only question left to ask is…when can I buy one?

“Imagine a shopping cart – a vehicle that can stack – you can take the first vehicle out of a stack and off you go,” says Mr Chin. “These stacks would be placed throughout the city. A good place would be outside a subway station or a bus line or an airport, places where there’s a convergence of transportation lines and people.”
