NSFW    MONTREAL, CANADA — A Canadian company has released an innovative idea that expands the concept of self-driving cars into self-driving rooms.

The self-driving room is known as Tridika. It is co-developed by Charles Bombardier and his company Imaginactive and Ashish Thulkar, a vehicle designer at the Indian Institute of Science.

The Tridika can be configured into a car-setting or an office, depending on the user’s liking. It is completely driverless and works like a maglev train, with the magnets elevates and propels the box.

It would become attached to the other wall of the building by a ramp, which lifts it up in front of the user’s apartment unit. The door of the apartment unit would open once detects the Tridika.

There’s no known date or plan for whether this concept would become a reality.
