Running late to work? Hoon outta bed with Nissan's new motorised slippers

Japan, folks.

How does it work? Well, each slippy has two very small wheels, a motor and sensors to ‘drive’ around, powered by Nissan’s ProPilot Park technology.

Yes, these self-driving slippers weren’t created to change mankind, but rather as a plush marketing ploy for the company’s auto-parking Nissan Leaf, the company’s latest step towards self-driving cars.

Nissan have also installed the tech into the tatami room tables and floor pillows, meaning you could come downstairs late at night to see the furniture scuttling about by itself.
