50 More Years: Volkswagen Beetle 2054

What's life going to be like in 50 years? We're figuring on a Sino-centric version of "Blade Runner," with Replicants built by the People's Republic of Toyota. For transportation, however, let's turn to Venezuelan designer Carlos Agell, who dreams of electric VW Beetles. Agell mocked up what a Volkswagen Beetle from 2054 might look like, complete with liquid-metal body for shape shifting and laser gyrostabilization system for accident avoidance. No word on whether it'll be built domestically or outsourced to an off-colony to cut costs.
