It’s just an experiment ... for now, at least. The “Armadillo-T” electric car, manufactured in South Korea, will fold itself nearly in half and then park itself. The purpose of the new car, which can travel 62 miles on a 10-minute charge and with a maximum speed of 37mph, is to create more parking spots in crowded cities. Smart, right? Instead of rear-view mirrors, the car has tiny digital cameras that show the back and sides of the car on a screen located on the dashboard.
