mdi06 via YouTube

If you are interest in seeing what the final product of the AirPod actually looks like on the road, check out this YouTube user:


There is a whole selection of material to choose from, including Un AirPod à Paris, a wonderful view of an AirPod in actual traffic!

Here's a quick screenshot:

Oh, wait a minute! Is that a Smart car right next to an AirPod? Interesting size comparison!

Passenger Capacity:

= 2 people vs AirPod = 3 people!

I'm not entirely sure if this YouTube channel is directly from "les usines de MDI", but the sheer quality of the video suggests that it is. Excellent visual materials!

Thanks mdi06 - Hope to see more of you!


  1. the car looks cool..pretty small yet in good shape..
    electric cylinders

  2. MDI is now accepting reservations for AirPods to be delivered in late 2010. The fee for booking a reservation is Euro 500. Specifications are not available at this time.

    Homologation/certification status is a bit unclear. Three months ago MDI said that all certification tests have been passed. They have repeated that again, this time on the site. The also say that the certification number has been reserved, although they don't say directly that the AirPod has received certification.

  3. pleasure to find such a good artical! please keep update!! ........................................

  4. IT IS A VERY NICE SUGGESTION, THANK YOU LOTS! ........................................

  5. Hello!

    Yes I can assure you this Youtube video channel is by MDI itself. And indeed this comparison with a Smart for Two is interesting. The Airpod is higher, shorter and lighter yet carries three people. Some chaps who drove one not long ago say that being an Airpod passenger and therefore facing backwards, is not annoying at all. I wondered about that. In the bus I always want to sit in the direction of the driver.
