The Null Device

The Bufalino

Design innovation of the day: German industrial designer Cornelius Comanns has designed an ultra-compact and rather funky-looking one-person camping vehicle based on the Piaggio APE cargo scooter (for those unfamiliar with small Italian motor vehicles, that's a very small lorry/ute based on a motorscooter; essentially the Vespa's less frivolous big brother). He calls it the Bufalino:

It looks like it'd be great to go on holiday in, but given its size, it may be a rather solitary holiday. Perhaps this needs a Unhappy Hipsters caption?

My initial thought was that I wouldn't like to see that thing taking corners along the Great Ocean Road. The camping trip would very quickly end in the Bass Strait.

Do they have Piaggio APEs in Australia?
