Movie time, all the time.

Car ownership may be dying out in these parts, but let's see your bicycle do this. Mounted on the hood of the Smart Forstars, like a machine gun on a Rush 2049 car, is a Bluetooth-equipped projector that turns the nearest blank wall into a cinema.

That's the gimmick, but the car itself also has a transparent solar panel roof and plenty of other flashy design features. Smart calls it "sassy and friendly." It's electric. And, of course, you can park it practically anywhere.
