I wish 8. Rubber bodied cars

I wish cars would be built entirely out of rubber, atleast most of their outer shells. This is something I've been dreaming of since my college days and I just got reminded of it recently by someone else.

Imagine, never having to worry about scratches or dents! Imagine you crashing in to the car in front and all that both of you do is smile, wave at each other and drive off (dodge-em cars :)! Imagine, most of the car made out of a bio-material (rubber)! Less use of metal and plastics.

I know the material is a challenge to work with and may not have all the characteristics required to be an exoskeleton, but that does not make this implausible!

The 'I wish' series will be short posts highlighting simple, interesting, innovative and useful twists to daily random routines and objects.
