Why does this Apple car concept look like Apple’s biggest design fail?

Apple has been at the forefront of innovative tech design for many years now, right?

With its all-black exterior and one-window design, it kind of reminds me of an Apple mouse (which if you haven’t got yet, then why not check out our roundup of the best Apple mouse deals).

The patent for the car was filed by Apple and there are talks that’ll it feature a monocell battery, self-driving, and even a VR  entertainment system (see below). According to the patent(opens in new tab), the VR entertainment system will incorporate the vibrations and bumps from the car (I don’t know about you, but that sounds like travel sickness all over).

This isn’t the first Apple car patent we’ve seen over the last 12 months. Back in November, an artist created a 3D model of one of the Apple vehicles based on one of its patents, and I have to admit, it looked pretty chic. However, this patent that’s been brought to life by Concept Creator(opens in new tab) on Youtube, is, well, less exciting with its futuristic “windowless” look.

It seems as though I am not the only one that has noticed the car’s familiar shape. One user on Twitter replied to the design, “Please tell me that the charging port isn’t at the bottom of the car,” (you know because the awful Apple Mouse design), and another said, “they really gave a wireless mouse some wheels and called it a day”.

Unfortunately, we will have to wait until at least 2025 until Apple launches its very own vehicle. Why not check out our roundup of tall the best Apple deals to help you find the Apple device of your dreams?
