Where would you find a four-wheeled smart phone, a tiny futuristic tank and a robotic mobility scooter straight from the pages of a manga comic?
That's right -- the Tokyo Motor Show. We're looking East as we cast a wry eye on some of the most outlandish concept cars ever devised.
Japan's neon-drenched capital city has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to dreaming up new gadgets and gizmos. But the engineers at Honda and Toyota have outdone themselves with their new car designs -- which may or may not be heading to a showroom near you.
Visitors to the Tokyo Motor Show could be forgiven for thinking they'd somehow been teleported into a dystopian alternative universe where cars have evolved into sentient beings who'll guide you around the city of the future, using blank-eyed holographic avatars in nurses' uniforms.
Or maybe this universe will be populated by manga girls who glide around on bikes resembling a cross between Judge Dredd's Lawmaster and a mobility scooter. Either way, it seems the car industry is keen to forget its current problems and focus on what we'll all be driving tomorrow. So we thought we'd bring you the top five craziest concepts from the Tokyo Motor Show.
Highlights include the Toyota Fun-Vii, a car covered with LED panels you can customise with your smart phone; the Honda Micro Commuter, a battery-powered car that aims to give worn-out salary men a new lease of life; and the Kobot, a transforming smart phone-operated scooter. But which will take the top spot in our list of craziest concepts? Click play to find out.
