You love public transportation only because of the temporary freedom it allows you to space out, pass out, or tune out. But you still have to put up with waiting for the bus/train, finding a seat, and the dreaded B.O. that riding with hundreds of others can impart. Looking more like the love child of a droid and a kid’s Tupperware lunch box than a car, the Ami One is designed as a public transportation alternative that’s drivable in Europe in urban areas by anyone 16 and over and doesn’t require a license just like motorized scooters, but this time with four wheels. Inside the diminutive boxy coupe are a small steering wheel, 5-inch instrument screen, gearshift, smartphone charger, and a Bluetooth pairable audio speaker. The Ami One is a hair longer than 8 feet, has a 62-mile operating range and can hit 28 mph, so you won’t be setting any land speed records. Users can unlock it via QR code and use it in a unique leasing arrangement from 5 minutes to as much as 5 hours. The Ami One is also meant for carsharing, rental, and even purchase. Look for it at the Geneva Motor Show starting March 7th.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
