Nissan's new concept car 'feels like flying' (w/ Video)October 8, 2009 in Technology / Engineering
Nissan unveiled Thursday a futuristic concept car that tilts to the side when going around bends to make drivers feel like they are gliding through the air.
The zero-emission electric "Land Glider" seats two people -- one in the front and one in the back.
Just 1.1 metres (3.6 feet) wide, it can easily squeeze into tight parking spaces and through narrow streets.
"In the past a car used to move only in a two dimensional way but the Land Glider can move in a three dimensional way," said Nissan's Ryusuke Hayashi, who is overseeing the project.
