The Ultimate Driving Machine™

Right, here we have…a goldfish-powered car. Ford, Chevy, and the rest should take a close look. Think of the energy savings!

TO is 2 much.

  1. Nice tank!
    As cool as this is, “The Ultimate Driving Machine” is officially TM’d by BMW.

  2. 0.0 Heavens! That is so cool!

  3. That fish is a better driver than some humans I’ve seen… Cool idea!

    it makes me think of the mice in “So Long and Thanks for All the Fish”

  5. “Just keep driving, just keep driving, just keep driving driving driving. What do we do? We drive, drive…”

  6. Sharon Wilson says:

    I noticed the car takes a few seconds to react after the fish “decides” its direction. I can’t help but think that would be pretty dangerous at road speeds…

  7. I like how this vehicle allows the fish to think outside the tank.

  8. Was anyone else immediately put in mind of Klaus from American Dad?!

  9. A fish called Honda!

    What happens when it hits something?

    A piscine chauffeur – I like it! Just needs a little fine-tuning…….

  11. *Flashing Lights / Sirens* Pull over there Goldie …

    Can I see your drivers license and proof of insurance please …

    Fine tuna-ing.

  13. It’s an interesting idea but studies show that they follow the lunar clock so they come in at 5am but leave at 2pm.

  14. Does the poor fish ever get to go home to a nice aquarium with coral, rocks, plants, food & buddies? Floating in a nothing world can make you crazy.

  15. Yes!

  16. I wonder if it realizes on some fishy level that its swimming moves the car. I’d love to see a comparison of how it swims with the car turned off (or in a similar tank) vs the car turned on!

  17. Honestly people, you can’t think it’s cute to put a fish in a tiny tank that wobbles around unless the fish stays still which it wont as there is no cover whatsoever? There is no fun in it for the fish and No choice to escape the situation. And people experimenting with animals in this thoughtless way shouldnt be rewarded with a post on CO.

  18. i’m pretty sure the fishy has a home tank, hopefully decorated nicely.

    i suspect it does, they’re brighter than most ppl give them credit for being.

  20. onionpencil says:

    it’s a bit wobbly, but i love the idea. i wish my fish could roam around the house. not sure i agree that the fishy is horribly stressed or mistreated.

  21. Fleurdamour says:

    I guess a fish really does need a bicycle after all.

  22. I suspect the fish doesn’t mind a little adventure. Sitting in the same tank in the same position has got to be monotonous. This way he gets the real sensation of moving like he would in the sea.

  23. The Sparks of Europa say, ‘Been there, done that.’ ;)
