Check out this new patent from Google (and no, we’re not making this up) for a semi-collapsing front end of a car that’s covered in super sticky glue.
The idea is that when the firm’s driverless cars have an incident with pedestrians, wildlife, cyclists or motorcyclists (we assume) the front end of the car absorbs some of the impact force and a sticky glue that’s then released ‘catches’ the pedestrians (or wildlife, cyclist, motorcyclist etc) and stops them fallen under the wheels.
Honestly, this has got to be the weirdest story of the day.
And we’ve been dealing with the Guy Martin – Human-powered blimp story a bit on today, too.
Anyway, here’s another design showing the front of the car and where the glue is in more detail – but there’s no mention on how the pedestrian, cyclist, wildlife or motorcyclist eventually gets prized off the sticky stuff:
