Honda PUYO's unique tactile materials mimic pets
The description above is likely to either evoke a profound desire to cuddle the cute little thing, or evoke a dread that you might, at some point, have to go out into the yard and clean up after it. But despite the cars decidedly pet-influenced design, and the attendant connotations, the concept actually does seem to provide a lot of interior space for a minimum of exterior real estate. And as cars are forced to become lighter and smaller to meet increasingly rigid fuel and emissions demands, or as they switch to alternate power sources like electricity, such designs will become the wave of the future. Still, they'll have to be attractive cars, so the PUYO isn't out of the woods yet.
