A Fascinating Piece On What “Could Have Been” In Our Cars

The story of innovation is one of a handful of outstanding successes in a sea of innumerable failures. Sometimes, extremely rapid progress is made. Since the first flight in 1903, it took mankind only 66 years from that point to land on the moon. We’re constantly looking for new ways to make our lives easier and more convenient.

In 2015, we are seeing an array of wonderful and numerous innovations coming from the auto industry. From sleeker designs, to electric power, and more environmentally efficient cars. Yet looking back, it’s fun to see just how far we’ve come and how many innovations and concepts have already been pondered and tried out along the way. Such as the fascinating concept of a ‘wrist-twist’ steering wheel. Judging from what’s in your car today, it’s clear the design didn’t catch on. But a fascinating peek into the past of automobiles is still worthwhile.
