The safest car in the world is a horrible little thing that is completely unusable.
The abomination you see here is being billed as the world's safest car. It was made by a Japanese company called Humanix, with help from a group of students from Hiroshima University. Its method for protecting its occupants (there is room for three adults, although this is a fairly optimistic figure) is extensive use of airbags on the car's exterior. The funny part of this is that, although the exterior is covered in airbags, there are none on the interior.
It is an electric car, and a three-wheeled one at that, with a top speed of 31mph, a very safe speed. Humanix hasn't disclosed the range, but if I was a bettin' man, I'd guess that it isn't fantastic. Perhaps most surprising is that this wasn't done as an exercise, they intend to produce this car, hilariously called the iSAVE-SC1, at a price of $10,000 each. There is one very dangerous aspect of this car, in that the driver will inevitably come to envy the dead and intentionally crash it in a bit for oblivion.
