A driverless car has gone on display at Science Central in Newcastle. The car, inspired by Durham Cathedral, is called The Mini Cathedral and was designed by Sunderland born artist Dominic Wilcox. It is the first in a series of installations. This one looks at the future of transport.
With the driver freed from actually driving, Wilcox had the idea of making vehicle's into a mobile office or a Jacuzzi car, a sunbed on wheels or a cocktail bar. This model is a 'sleep car'.
“If there are no collisions, designers will no longer be restricted by the need to include the safety equipment we see in modern-day cars,”
With no need for an airbag, steering wheel or gear stick – Wilcox was free to “create a living space on wheels”. The prototype has only a bed inside, where the passengers can sleep while the car takes them to their destination.
