No matter how important or necessary driving a car is to your life, there's no escaping the fact that the experience itself is a bit, well, boring. No matter what model you have or specifications you have made to the engine, most cars basically.

Just what I always wanted - a swimming pool in the back of my car, but I would prefer if it was a Jacuzzi!

Haha. A pool car? C'mon. Wiperless windows - yes!

Especially a solar-powered car charger. Get off the grid, go green! OK, works only when the sun is shining, but if you can store the energy - well, ain't that what the car battery does anyway?

Wiperless windows - it's called Rain-X, a window spray based on what the aircraft industry uses on airliner windows and the military uses on aircraft and ship windows. The stuff repels water so it blows off without much need for wipers. The PV solar cell idea for cars is already available as a roof panel that can trickle charge the battery to improve its readiness when the car is only occasionally in use - and reduce the load on the alternator a little while driving. A 12V jack adaptor for the phone can tap from the trickle charge current from the solar cell set as easily as from the main battery. The swimming pool gimmick has been around as long as rednecks have been putting big plastic tarps in the back of Rancheros or El Caminos and filling it woth water; the status monitor boxes were around in the 80s as add-ons to regular cars. The blowup seatbelts have been used in racing and are probably less obnoxious than regular 'airbags', I would prefer to use a six point racing seatbelt harness instead of putting up with explosive airbags filled by sodium azide torpedo detonators left over from WW2.
