Isn't it lovely when the designers think of us busy housewives?

shopping bags

Unveiled at the Geneva motor show is a car that shows the designers really love us harassed mothers.

You know what it's like. You pop into the supermarket for a pint of milk and a newspaper, and you end up staggering out under the weight of bags and bags of shopping. Then you get to the car, and have to fumble for your keys, dropping everything onto the tarmac.

Well, now the designers of a new car have put years of thought into a special rear bumper that's designed to open obligingly - when you kick it. Yes, it's programmed to respond to the human kick (as long as it senses you also have the key in your pocket! Quite how it does that, I don't know!)

Looking forward to a test drive!
