This bubblicious little one-seater was on display at Japan’s Design Engineering & Manufacturing Solutions Expo, according to Tech-On. Obviously not a car show, the HUVO was shown because of the new manufacturing processes used to create the prototype, which include systems designed to fabricate the high-tensile steel plate using precision press molds and 3D laser processing.

That all sounds lovely, but the real question is when is one of these gonna show up at our door? At about 330 pounds, they could probably just crate it and ship it EMS for like $200. We promise that if we get one, we’ll take it for a spin to the local Smart dealer and laugh in their faces. Until we run into something and wreck the HUVO, at which point we’ll ask the Smart service department for a ride home.
