Bangling along.

Very interesting talk by Chris “love it or hate it” Bangle as part of the Revs program at Stanford University. Chris was the leader of design at BMW until a few years ago.

In this talk, he wonders what could happen in a near future when we try to split the “car-ness” and mobility layers of the car owning experience. Makes you think…
