    An amazing factory – shame the end product – the Phaeton is such stylistic non-event and a barge; as for the smartphone parking, please god it never happens, what happens if the phone rings and they answer it or they leave their phone parked car so close no one else can get access, and I’m sure there are other downsides?

    I am impressed by both the factory and the car-parking device. Despite all the well-discussed downsides to our current societal condition it has to be noted that we are in the most productive and industrially thoughtful period of human history. Now if only someone can do something about the growing number of mad drivers.

    As an engineer I applaud their efforts to bring manufacturing to the fore. However, there’s a big difference between an assembly plant, which this is, and a real factory.
