Disappearing car door

Posted by: Dave In: Design |Technology

This is an amazing feat of industrial design. I don’t know why someone hasn’t thought of it sooner. It’s beautiful.

It *is* beautiful, but what happens when it snows, or if the wind is blowing a lot in rainy weather? Don’t you end up with a lot of snow/rain inside your car? I assume they’ve tested that, but I’m curious.

Yeah, I think you might get a bit more weather inside the vehicle if you needed to get in and out during a rain storm. But I think the convenience during the rest of the year when it’s not raining might out weight the inconvenience of a rain storm. Especially for physically challenged drivers.

I think the company is from England, so they must have to deal with quite a bit of weather.

Unfortunately, I suspect it’s pretty expensive right now to have this custom-made for your car. Otherwise I could see applications for the health care industry to make things much easier for disabled drivers to get around.

  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
