Nissan Makes Creepy Autonomous Slippers, Pillows and Tables

If you thought Nissan was done making wild creations with its ProPILOT technology, this video will leave you speechless.

In 2016, Nissan introduced the self-parking office chair, before unveiling the ProPILOT Chair that detected and automatically followed the chair ahead of it. The ProPILOT Chair was designed for those having to wait in line at a crowded restaurant and the automaker actually conducted real-world testing at restaurants across Japan.

But now it has announced ProPILOT Park Ryokan, which at first glance, looks like a traditional Japanese inn, or ryokan. But inside, there are slippers, tables, and cushions featuring a special version of Nissan’s ProPILOT Park autonomous parking technology.

Yes, the Japanese automaker has created self-parking slippers, tables, and cushions. When the items aren’t in use, they automatically return to their designated spots with a push of a button. Just when you thought self-parking chairs were already an outlandish idea, Nissan has managed to develop something even crazier.

So what’s next for the company? Your guess is as good as ours. But we wouldn’t be surprised if Nissan has something else up its sleeves.
