    So many of our great inventions have been inspired by nature.

    A new Toyota concept car is generating quite a buzz because it was inspired by a horse.

    Drivers of the innovative vehicle would control it by essentially standing and shifting their body weight to make it lean in one direction. There is no steering wheel in the small car.

    Called the FV2, it is scheduled to make its very first public appearance at the Tokyo Motor Show. A spokesperson for Toyota stated “This is an imagination piece rather than something that will be seen in production in the next few years. But some of the technologies we're suggesting could be introduced further down the line - say in five to 10 years' time."

    The purpose of the car is to incorporate a level of trust and understanding between the vehicle and the operator, which is similar to the relationship of a horse and rider. FV2 drivers can lean backwards, forwards and to the side.

    The company also outfitted the concept car with sensors for both facial and vocal recognition. The windshield doubles as an augmented reality display, allowing information to be presented like upcoming destinations.
