, we are in the future
-- Heathrow Airport is rolling out those driverless pod taxis it announced two years ago
, and they look just as adorable as ever. The ULTra Personal Pod cars are fully automated battery-powered pods that zoom around at up to 25mph on a special road network, and can transport four passengers and their luggage between Heathrow's Terminal 5 and its business car parks. If, like us, you have a thing for retro-futuristic design
, you'll do well to check out the gallery below, complete with interior shots, and there's also a video after the break. Enjoy!
