Rinspeed, a Swiss automobile manufacturer, unveiled their latest concept car at the Geneva Motor Show.

The etos brings the option of autonomous driving and includes and on-board DJI drone equipped with a TomTom Bandit action camera to record the driver's exploits.

The Banditís industry-first ability to edit footage without having to download it means the driver can shoot video, then edit and share in minutes. All made possible via the Banditís built-in Media Server and video highlights captured by in-camera action sensors (GPS, accelerometer, gyro, barometer and compass).

"The TomTom Bandit was an obvious choice for etos" says Frank M. Rinderknecht, CEO of Rinspeed. And Peter-Frans Pauwels, Co-founder of TomTom said "This is an exciting encounter of two like-minded companies."

Previous notable concepts from Rinspeed include the sQuba, based on a Lotus Elise and which was able to fly underwater and the Splash, a car that was equipped with a hydrofoil.

April the 1st has arrived early this year. Surely they are not serious and how would the drone keep up with the car, is it jet propelled?

Good question. Seems ridiculous to say the least.
