'Fish car' allows goldfish to drive around

A perplexing new automobile has been invented that gives goldfish the opportunity to go for a drive.
The bizarre contraption is essentially a fish tank on wheels with a computerized steering mechanism that uses a digital camera to detect where the fish is located and in what direction it is swimming.

By processing this data the system is able to move the vehicle to match the position of the fish so that the unwary occupant is effectively driving itself around.

The "fish on wheels" device is the brainchild of a company called Studio Diip and is designed to encourage the development of enhancements in pet mobility.

I don't want my fish driving around the house while I'm asleep. Hey, does this thing have fish seat belts ?

What does a fish care about driving around the house at foot level???? "Oh I'm assuming from it's legs that's a lovely table you have there" Insane.

Imagine the horror when the military gets a hold of this technology...weaponized land sharks that drive cars.

I just can't think of one person who would think this is a good idea. Put a piranha in it as a guard fish. Burglars break in and scream in terror, "OMG there's a piranha driving that fish car around and he's coming right for us! Run!" Likely. Not.

Actually, the fish shouldn't have trouble learning how to drive properly, since it's used to being in a school.
