The Covertech Automotive Car Cover protects your car from every element, even -- according to its maker -- "malicious intent." When you're ready to take the cover off, apparently all you need to do is stand back and watch. The cover retracts automatically into a "briefcase-sized" enclosure in a trunk or hatchback. There's even one for motorcycles that fits in a "Kleenex-sized" box.
The creator envisions carmakers eventually integrating the automatic car cover into the design of their cars. Sounds neat, but when you want to cover your car up again, you'll need good old manual labor for that. Personally, we can't see needing to cover and uncover your car often enough in one day to make such a device necessary, but perhaps there are folks with the need for easy incognito. But while it's hard to tell from the video, the answer is yes, it probably will make your bumper look big.

Thanks for the tip, Yash!

      According to the site:

      "Its made from strong, rip-resistant and lightweight."

      That's fantastic.

        No doubt it's space age material. Like Tang.

        It's made from strong, rip-resistant, and lightweight." Man I wish I was made out of strong, rip-resistant, and lightweight. That would pwn.

      Like 'Tang: THE space-aged material for all time! Even beats both carbon fiber and carbon fibre!

      I love 'Tang!

      Ohh! Ohh! Sign me up to drag a cloth over my car that was dragged on the ground! I like that scratched paint look.

      That's awesome, I love it.

      Got a good laugh from the video. And I actually do want one.

      Nice bumper.

      Forget the car cover, what's the lady's name and number?
