There’s something inherently funny, too, in the idea of a self-driving car, constructed from beautiful yet shatter-prone stained glass; especially when the inhabitant is encouraged to sleep during the journey. And who wouldn’t raise a smile at the Pre-Handshake Handshake Device, a tank containing two large rubber gloves, accessible from either side of the box, that “aims to help those who are at odds with each other make a first move toward reconciliation”. It does this by “lowering the bar for initiating reconciliation from the heights of the full contact hand-on-hand handshake to a more palatable non-contact handshake”.
