Trilobite Car From Burning Man

The car in the video, based on the prehistoric trilobite creature, is known as its Latin name, the "Sarriugarteis (Odontochile) trilobiteis," or the Electrobite. It was made by the same people that made the famed snail car for the Burning Man Festival.

They say the internal workings are based a wheelchair, but it's movements totally remind me of the spinning snails in Disney's Electric Parade. One of the truest-to-Burning-Man-adaptations is its  ability to hold a propane tank just in case it needs to shoot fire out the horns.

The creators say they hope their next project can incorporate the Segway, for example, a wobbly mushroom vehicle.
