As I was chatting with a fellow blogger this morning, she mentioned that she already bought lots of things from her earnings via blogging and lately a car. I said: “Wow that was awesome! I wish I could do that also!” I was really mesmerized by her financial achievement that I found myself imagining getting my own cool and fast cars from blogging too.
Then I stumble upon this image that looks like a “box of oranges” inspired vehicle with its unique shape and color that is so appealing. It happens to be the 2008 Scion Hako Coupe Concept that was recently unveiled at the prestigious 2008 New York International Auto Show last March 19, 2008.
Hi-Tech at its best inside the car.
The orange driver’s seat has a gaming theme. Instrumentation and warning lights cascade from the art inspired instrument panel to the steering wheel. The shifter, located on the center console, resembles a large joystick. On the steering wheel is a simple button to start the engine and a track-ball type control for the Hako’s entertainment system located on the passenger dash.
The entertainment system consists of two video monitor screens mounted on the dash for radio, video, and music capabilities. Users can upload their videos and music through a Bluetooth® connection. The front passenger controls the system using a large rollerball mounted on the center of the dash. A black seat differentiates the front passenger area.
Video monitors located on each door and on each side of the rear seating area project distorted fish-eye images from orange filtered cameras mounted beneath the A-pillars. While the vehicle is parked the driver and passenger can edit the scenes captured by the cameras to show their friends where they have been and perhaps even post the clip online for others to see.
If moolah is no concern (as always hehe). I wouldn’t think twice buying this car. This auto would perfectly fit my personality being a blogger. I can imagine myself parking it on a nearby lake, listening to some unruffled music from its stereo while making this post from my Mac notebook! Or driving it on the freeway with the speakers pumping rap musik, while I look for directions on my GPS navigation system. (wake me up, lol!)
