Traffic in big cities like Los Angeles and New York can make getting around a pain in the ass, but what if you could leave the roads behind and just scale buildings to get where you needed to go? That’s where Olio’s Oto pods come in. The bubble-shaped pods use swappable, autonomous wheelbases to help move you down the road or up the side of a building.

I’m not sure why you’d need to climb a building to get away from traffic, at least not all the way up. I’m also not sure how many people in office buildings want their windows to be turned into highways, but it’s an interesting concept.
