Ross Lovegrove's Car on a Stick concept takes multi-tasking to extremes. The latest idea from the former Apple and Sony designer, who has quite a penchant for solar-powered thingies is a solar-powered transport pod that can carry up to four people, plus shopping bags, that can be stored in an ingenious fashion.

A telescopic pole beneath the vehicle enables the car on a stick to be raised when not in use, keeping it off the road and transforming it into a street light. Sat-nav equipped, the bubble cars respond to voice commands and gather energy via a solar canopy on the roof.

There is about as much chance of this becoming reality, sadly, as there is of me editing Engadget. Yeah, I keep turning down their desperate advances. [Dezeen]

DISCUSSION

This guy should find a new career because he's obviously not cut out for product design.

This concept is a brain fart that should have been rejected the moment it was dreamt up and instead of made public.

I'm all for innovative, creative proposals, but this has no practical application and doesn't address some fairly obvious issues.

As art it doesn't work either because it's so contrived a concept. Like we haven't seen bubble cars a thousand times before.
