toyota-fv2-to-be-unveiled-at-the-2013-tokyo-motor-show-photo-gallery-medium_9

The Tokyo Motor Show is always good for an unusual transportation device or two and this year’s show looks to be no exception.  Toyota will be debuting the FV2, which appears to be a cross between a leaning trike, a jet ski and a horse. That’s right, a horse. The FV2 is supposed to connect the driver physically and emotionally to the driving experience and it is controlled by the rider’s body motions. Shifting the driver’s body will cause the vehicle to move forward, backward, left or right. Toyota sees the driver and FV2 developing a relationship similar that between a rider and a horse, with the FV2 learning the driver’s behavior.  The vehicle even uses voice and image recognition to analyze the driver’s mood and suggest destinations.
