This strange Armadillo-like creature is the latest in solar-powered motoring technology: it's a motorcycle encased in 25 square feet of solar panels from Spanish manufacturer Sunred.
Sadly, you won't see anyone driving the bike around in this excitingly futuristic configuration, as it is designed to charge with the 'shell' down while parked. Once full of solar energy, the bike has a 12 mile range and a top speed of, er, 30 miles an hour. Not exactly a mean machine, then.
The electric motor is stuck right inside the rear axle, saving on transmission friction, and SunRed hopes to start making a working prototype soon. As soon as loads of venture capital companies read all the web coverage this prototype picture has got and bung them over a few million quid. Then maybe they can make it go a bit faster!
