    This is exactly what I wanted in the future.

    Anyone remember Minority Report, the Tom Cruise movie? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vrxyr1CjiSM  So cool he can do whatever he wants while he is on it.  (Don't watch too far into this video.  Things do start to go wrong. Perhaps that's a bad example for what I want for the future.)

      This reminds me of the iRobot (Will Smith).

      Oh, crap.  This one nalso ends up in a car accident.  What's wrong with Hollywood?  Sweet Audi though.

        Yeah, but in both examples, the cars still look like cars. 

        I was thinking more like this

          No, LOL!!

          but I think this is doable.   Imagine working in one of your rooms, on a desk, laptop, Internet.   ...then you just step out at certain times to be at a grocery store or a campsite.

          The future is bright indeed.

          haha! Could you imagine if Uber did a big reveal of their autonomous car and it looked like this?!

          Uber: "and for the first time ever, we are finally unveiling our vehicle of the future"

          Audience *crickets*, WTF?!

              See those individual wrappings?  Each one includes a human being.

              That's how humans are birthed and delivered in the future.
