Dive and drive
Check out this cool new concept car from Swiss car maker Rinspeed. It’s called the sQuba, and on the surface, it looks like an ordinary luxury sports car. But it’s special. For one, it doesn’t need a driver. It can drive itself! The car has a high-tech laser sensor system that allows it to “see” the road and avoid hitting obstacles like trees and innocent pedestrians.
A self-driving car should be impressive enough, but this car can do much more. The most amazing thing about the sQuba is that, as the name implies, it can go underwater! Once submerged, it can “fly” around like a little submarine. How cool is that? Sounds like the perfect car, right?
So what’s the catch? Well, the car has an open top, which means that you’ll get very wet once you go underwater. You’ll definitely need some scuba gear if you don’t want to drown. Scuba, sQuba… get it? 😉
And oh, did I mention that this concept car comes with a US$1.4M price tag? So, unless you’re a multimillionaire, the most you can do is enjoy this video of the sQuba in action. 🙂
