Filed under: Technology , Toyota Toyota is one of the largest automakers in the world, but it’s not content simply building and selling conventional cars – it’s been at the forefront of numerous advancements in ground transportation. It is widely credited with advancing the cause of hybrid propulsion, and alongside Audi and Google , is among the first automakers seriously testing self-driving cars . We could go on, but the news here is that Toyota is reportedly developing vehicles that hover above the road surface instead of rolling along it. The news comes from Hiroyoshi Yoshiki, one of Toyota’s tech gurus, who revealed at Bloomberg’s Next Big Thing summer in San Francisco that the company is working on hovering cars – ones that travel just above the road surface, but don’t actually fly in three-dimension space. According to The Verge , a spin-off of our own sister-site Engadget , Yoshiki refused to elaborate on what the project entails and how far along it is. He was speaking along acting NHTSA chief David Friedman, who lauded such advancements as a “great taste of innovations to come,” but stressed the significance of more concrete improvements to conventional automobiles – like inter-car communications to keep vehicles from colliding on the highway – as more relevant to today’s industry.

Filed under: Concept Cars , Coupe , Tokyo Motor Show , Toyota , Design/Style Of all the vehicles Toyota brought to the Tokyo Motor Show , the FV2 might be the most creative. The minimalist single-seat concept is a glimpse at Toyota’s idea of a “fun to drive” vehicle in the future. The FV2 is essentially a pod with a diamond-shaped wheel array (what powers said wheels has not been disclosed), and Toyota says that the technology of the vehicle allows it to gauge the driver’s mood and suggest possible destinations. The interaction between driver and vehicle is also displayed in an augmented reality screen on the windshield, and the car can also act as a mood ring of sorts with exterior colors and patterns that can change based on the driver’s mood. We can just see it now: “Don’t mess with Jim today, his car is red.” Scroll down for a brief press release on the FV2.
