It’s here, it’s finally here.
Well, not actually here, Google’s hallowed driverless car is still in Silicon Valley - still, we imagine, driving around the Mountain View-based, Googleplex car park. But we’ve seen photos, so we know a fully-fledged prototype exists. Google's Sergey Brin calls it “chauffeur.”
The car has had mixed reviews, with some calling its face-like bonnet “goofy.” Others think it’s really cute.
Well, we thought we’d imagine what Google was thinking when it designed the two-seater, 125mph, cuddle-mobile. Try and peek into the creative genius of Google designers:
We think they definitely started off with a Porsche.
Then maybe got side-tracked by a Koala.
And then moved through a few favourite cartoon characters. Fans of Japanese animator Miyazaki will surely recognise a touch of Totoro in the car's little face, from 1988 classic, My Neighbour Totoro.
Or perhaps they were looking back at Richard Scarry's famous Lowly Worm character, and his fruity wheels.
There's every chance one of the designers were wearing a pair of classic grey Nikes.
Maybe their kids have got one of these guys.
But mostly, people are saying it looks a bit like one of these...
