The designer’s Driverless Sleeper Car of the Future is meant to imagine auto travel in an age in which computers control cars well enough to avert all traffic accidentsthereby, rendering both a driver and safety concerns moot. “In the future it will be safer to drive in a driverless car than it will in a manual car,” says Wilcox, who was commissioned for the project by design magazine Dezeen and the British car brand MINI. “Therefore we don’t need the protection systems that are built into contemporary cars. We can just have a shell of any design.” And, conveniently enough, a bed. Wicox outfitted the car’s roomy interior, no longer cluttered with traditional controls, with a comfy bed, turning it, quite literally, into a sleeper car. And if this idea ever morphs into reality, we’d have to call it the century’s unmitigated sleeper hit.stained_glass_car_by_Dominic_Wilcox_dezeen_468_6stained_glass_car_by_Dominic_Wilcox_dezeen_784_3stained_glass_car_by_Dominic_Wilcox_dezeen_784_4stained_glass_car_by_Dominic_Wilcox_dezeen_784_1stained_glass_car_by_Dominic_Wilcox_dezeen_784_6stained_glass_car_by_Dominic_Wilcox_dezeen_784_2stained_glass_car_by_Dominic_Wilcox_dezeen_784_5
