What could be coming down the pipe in car technology is this retractable door known as the disappearing door.

To the untrained eye, this modification on the car door may seem a bit frivolous; however, benefits include never being ‘parked in’ and needing less space because door swing is no longer an issue.

The website lists other cool attributes such as enhancement of body stiffness and strength and increased safety in door operation and vehicular crash worthiness.

All of these attributes are very useful considering that cities are becoming increasingly pressed for space.
