iSave-SC1 – Car Covered with Cushions to Save You from Accidents

Posted on the 28 December 2012 by Nrjperera

You can’t always trust those airbags in your vehicles to save you every time when an accident happens. Besides, airbags wont help if you accidentally hit a pedestrian with your car. Students at Hiroshima University thought about this problem and came up with a solution, but it wasn’t the brightest idea. They have designed a vehicle that protects both the driver and pedestrians from accidents by covering the whole thing with cushions. They call it, iSave-SC1.

As you can see, this three-wheeler is almost entirely covered with air-filled cushions. And, it can top up to about 50 kmph (31 mph) speed. Also, it can even take you 30 km far with single charge.

These students have tagged a 790,000-yen price for this vehicle. Which goes up for about $9,212 US dollars. Despite the human friendly design, lets just hope it wont hit the roads, because if it does, you will probably wish you get hit by a train.

Check out the video to see these students playing with their pillow-covered vehicle.
