This is a video of the Hum Rider built by Thinkmodo to promote Verizon's Hum, a system consisting of a "dongle that plugs into the OBD port on any car made after 1996 and a Bluetooth speaker. It adds diagnostics, road-side assistance, location and speed tracking and geo-fencing." Interesting. And by interesting I mean I just drive cars until they catch fire and explode, at which point I walk away in slow motion. So yeah, this ridiculously modified Jeep Cherokee that can extend its wheels and drive over cars in traffic provided those cars are perfectly in line. Do you know what else can drive over other cars, have existed for decades, and are way cooler? "Monster trucks." Exactly. *wiping tears* I'm sorry I just love them so much.
Keep going for the video.
Thanks to Kevin M, who avoids traffic jams the future way: with a jetpack. Just watch out for power lines.
