An SUV That Can Transform And Drive Over Other Cars In Traffic

March 20, 2017


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.

    lol at the car with their mirrors turned in. see if i do that politely for this ass clown to pass me, i think not. Paying for my new mirrors bro.

  • antalicus

    It cuts away right before he plows into that truck thats too high.

  • IckyRickyB

    This would be great, it could remove every single side view mirror as it goes. notice all the 'test' cars have theirs pulled in.

  • KungFuTreachery

    I miss Monster Garage.

    It would be even better if it had an oil leak.

    *insert transformer noise* People build this. but don't build wheels to do a 90 turn. So you can park sideways. I feel sorry for all the side mirror breaks. And probably bad scratches.

    I used to think low riders were cool. You know how the saying goes. Hit switches; get bitches.

    This is just one switch. So you get no bitch? I think that's how it works.

  • Andyman7714

    Yeah...he didn't clear that pickup truck now did he? They just edited around it.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Maybe when the pickup hit the switches and got low.

  • Perpetual Pizza

    It would be interesting to see what would happen if everyone had one of these.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I'm looking forward to the inevitable demo derby that only has these vehicles in it. Although "inevitable" is not the right word. "Improbable" maybe.

    Still, it'd be entertaining. Especially the part when people die.

  • Jenness

    This is the type of vehicle that everyone wants but no one wants anyone else to have but them - and if they did then they'd call them an entitled asshole.

  • but is he ready to take on Speed Racer?

  • TheQiwiMan

    I can't even count how many times I've been sitting in traffic daydreaming about owning a car that could do something like that.

  • Meh

    That is if there's not some asshole standing across the line or that you don't face a van or that you don't face a bridge or see some asshole driving a dodge that's wider than its length. I think the point is clear.
