    Have the Toyota designers/concept makers gone mad?

    The link below is a video on youtube of a concept car by Toyota called the Fun vii. This is either a joke or a very far off mad design!

    Toyota Fun Vii - YouTube!

    There is also a spelling mistake in the video on the information page they have put infomation. Plus at 1:28 in the bottom left hand comer there is a Microsoft logo! We have enough accidents on our roads without having Microsoft contribute to them.

    Enjoy having a laugh at this video.

    Well it's Japanese after all. Spend half a day watching Japanese TV and you'll think that advert/promo looks rather tame and dull.

    Does the fact that they've used two i make it doubly interactive or is it just lack of imagination or that Wii was already taken

    I'm already seeing ways to cause untold amounts of offence to passers-by with that bodywork.

    isnt that the point of concept cars though to throw out wacky ideas and see what "sticks" then develop useful concepts into things that go into the next generation of cars?

    I understand your point but surely there should be some realism and some possibility to it happening. Technology is anywhere near that yet and it certainly not in the near future.

    Anyway how much is that car going to cost, when it comes out? Surely no one be able to afford it.

    but its just an ideas showcase some less extreme versions of some bits will probably make it into a production model. look at the current mondeo as a concept car it had gullwing doors and iirc an orange interior. Bmw made a car with a fabric skin and so on They make concepts for a few reasons.

    1 keeps designers happy
    2 show where the next/next next gen cars are headed
    3 see if things they throw at them get a response good or bad
    4 to see if something is possible
