From self-parking cars to drones that fly you around, the future is looking pretty bright for those of you interested or invested in Skynet autonomous vehicles. We’ve seen quite a few concept cars from notable marquees that push the limits of believability, but the new Jaguar Future-Type Concept might just win the race in terms of planning for an automated future. Jaguar’s “Vision for 2040 and beyond” revolves around the concept of an on-demand autonomous vehicle that’s controlled by a “connected, intelligent, steering wheel you can talk to.” Known as “Sayer,” this smart steeling wheel will control functions ranging from summoning you a Future-Type on demand to allowing you to actually drive the car if you take it out of autonomous mode. When the vehicle is in fully autonomous mode, the tandem 2+1 “social seating” makes the entire experience comfortable while feeling like you’re being digitally chauffeured. As you might except, the Jaguar Future-Type Concept has no prototype or production plans any time in the near future.

 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.
