Carmaker Volvo have a bit of a reputation for bringing as much health and safety to their vehicles as possible. They have recently announced that all future cars will have strict speed limits, and that they will be installing in-car cameras that can keep an eye out for distracted driving. The next step in their car safety world takeover is one simple orange key…
Meet The Care Key
This orange key is not just a really cool car key – it’s so much more than that. It’s the latest invention from Volvo, called the ‘Care Key.’ This seemingly insignificant key is actually designed to make both the car and the road a safer place. So, what does it do? Well, anyone with the Care Key can actually set a maximum speed limit the car can go up to before it’s handed over to someone else to drive. What’s the point in that, though?
Safety For Teenagers
Volvo are all too aware that many road accidents are caused by teenagers with a need for speed. They ask to borrow mom and dad’s car, before putting their foot to the pedal, speeding off, and potentially causing an accident. With the Volvo Care Key, the owner of the car can set a top speed, hand over the key to the younger driver, knowing that they won’t be able to go over that maximum limit.
Care Key As Standard
Interestingly, the Care Key isn’t going to be an optional feature on future Volvo models. The carmaker has said that it will come as standard on all cars from the year 2021! Volvo have also explained that they may use the Care Key for further schemes in the future working with insurance companies. There has been a lot of talk of Volvo working alongside insurers to secure favorable rates for drivers of their cars, particularly those installed with their extra safety features.
On top of the Care Key, models from 2021 will be limited to 112 miles per hour and there will be more cars with their in-car camera system. It’s all part of their Vision 2020 in which their aim is to ensure no one is injured in a new Volvo by 2020. The Care Key will certainly play a big part in that!
30+ Things That Would Absolutely Kill Us But We’d Still Eat Without Hesitation
These intriguing and forbidden items would definitely have deadly consequences if consumed. However, due to their appearance, they would be eaten without hesitation, even if they have the potential to kill. From cleaning solution that looks like a soft drink to a mushroom that looks like Homer Simpsons’ doughnut fantasy, these items should be food but unfortunately, they’d kill us.
Now, that’s what we call bacon — the perfect addition to any breakfast as long as it’s made for a giant. This massive rock perfectly replicates a lovely slice of bacon.
So, despite that it’s actually nature’s creation, it would be very hard to resist just biting right into it. Even though it could kill or break someone’s teeth, we’d dare to eat this faux-bacon!
This mushroom looks like its destiny is to end up in Homer Simpson’s hand during a warm summer’s day in Springfield. This makeshift chocolate-covered doughnut could kill whoever dares to even touch it.
But, wow — does it look delicious or what?! Let’s bring this mushroom into a science lab and find a way to modify it so it can be eaten without killing or poisoning whoever eats it.
How would you like your sandpaper cooked? Well done, medium rare, or rare? This makeshift steak would kill you not because it wasn’t cooked enough, but because it is actually sandpaper.
Maybe, this is one steak that’s better off being very well done — ya know, just in case that makes it edible in some way. Steaks are one of the best-tasting foods in the world, which is why we would all eat this sandpaper steak without hesitation.
Combining the large runway of London Fashion Week to the four walls of Gordon Ramsey’s kitchen, this scarf perfectly replicates a massive head of lettuce or cabbage. If this beautiful scarf is consumed then yes, it will kill you. However, if it’s worn, then yes, you will look stylish.
It’s risky but the lettuce scarf might just be the perfect accessory to attract all single vegetarians this year. But, remember — do not eat it.
Inside of a Tennis Ball
This skeleton of a tennis ball looks like something that would be in a Christmas stocking and the recipient would be absolutely delighted. The chocolate-like substance would definitely kill whoever consumes the forbidden treat, but it’s a risk worth taking.
These small brown parts are so beautifully crafted that even Cadbury would be proud — despite the imminent death that would follow consuming this Wimbledon treat.
This Pennzoil premium wheel-bearing red grease looks like the best strawberry jam known to man. It would go perfectly in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, especially if the person eating the sandwich is immortal — because it would definitely result in death.
That shade of red looks good enough to be eaten by Thor, the God of Thunder, himself. Luckily, if he ate it, he would probably be fine, although it would kill any mere mortal.
If you grew up in the ’90s or early 2000s, there’s no doubt that you know what this thing is. A water wiggly, of course! And despite the fact that we know exactly what it is, we can’t help but be reminded of some sort of jello treat.
If you ate this squishy toy — full of liquid, sparkles, and fishies — you would die. It’s absolutely toxic, after all.
Look, we all know that even being in close proximity to lava would kill us and melt our faces off but let’s not lie to ourselves. We would eat lava without hesitation. It’s a beautiful, firey liquid that looks like it would be enjoyed by a giant from Game of Thrones.
Enjoying a nice bowl of lava would feel like you’re dining on some galaxy soup that you ordered from a restaurant that’s located beyond the stars.
This Rosin is usually used for bowed musical instruments but it looks like it should be framed in Winnie-the-Pooh’s house. If it does get framed, it would need to be followed by a caption that warns, “DO NOT EAT.” Why? Because it really would kill you.
Let’s be honest — no one really knows what rosin is unless they play a string instrument. With that, if no one warned us not to eat this, we’d probably all be dead by now.
Fabuloso Cleaning Solution
This Fabuloso Cleaning Solution looks like enchanted soda. Without zero hesitation, we’d gulp this down in seconds. How could anyone not drink this? It looks like the most refreshing and energizing drink that has ever graced the planet. One downside — it kills you
Yes, we know this could kill whoever would dare to drink it. But, we believe any human would drink this without hesitation. How could they not? It looks like it has wish-granting powers.
This prehistoric bone wouldn’t be out of place on an episode of Man vs Food. It could easily be from a burrito-eating competition. Unfortunately, if you ate this dinosaur burrito, then it would certainly kill you.
A person can only dream of what delicious fillings could have been put inside this bone if it had actually been a burrito. Based on the size of it, it could easily be filled with whatever the eater desires.
Who knew that the inside of our houses is filled with the world’s largest supply of cotton candy?! It turns out that we are living inside our own circus of sorts. Surely we would be alright if we ate this… right? Wrong. It would kill us. We would not survive.
Although the “cotton candy” that lives in our walls probably wouldn’t smell particularly appealing, that wouldn’t stop us from eating the pink stuff.
Maybe this is what Tiger Woods has been eating to make himself the golfer that he is. Probably not, though, because it would definitely kill him. The inside of this golf ball looks like tender golf meat that’s filled with special nutrients and vitamins.
It’s hard to imagine that the first time somebody cracked open a golf ball, they didn’t chow down on the filling. It does look pretty appetizing, after all.
This blue glue looks like it’s a cross between a Slush Puppie and a Twix — what a combination that is. This raspberry concoction would be a hit at any candy store. Still, due to the fact that it’s not candy, it would certainly kill if consumed.
Unfortunately, the temptation is just too strong. If put in the wrong hands, it would be eaten in seconds. It would be a mistake to eat this glue, but a mistake that has to be made.
A nice, refreshing glass of painty orange juice is sure to hit the spot, despite the fact it would kill anyone who drinks it. It does look like it could quench anyone’s thirst but unfortunately, we think it would quench a little too much… to the point of death.
Like lots of other orange-based drinks, this one is also artificial. However, the artificial ingredient just happens to be paint. What do you guys think? Would you drink this at first glance?
If you plated these bands up in a restaurant in Rome, then any diner would think they’re dreaming — as this looks like the perfect batch of fettuccine. After their first bite, however, they would realize they were sorely mistaken.
Does this bag of rubber bands look delicious? Yes. Would it kill whoever eats it? Yes. Would the person still eat it if they knew it would kill them? Probably.
“Oh my goodness, someone has attached legs to that piece of red candy!” Not completely the case but this multi-legged insect looks as if it would be perfect for the explore page of Instagram. Honestly, it sort of looks like a raspberry with legs.
How does such a small creature look so appetizing? There’s no way this wouldn’t be a part of someone’s diet. It would kill us, but we would still feel healthy for eating it — before dying, of course.
This pint of ale will guarantee that you have refreshing breath for the rest of your days to come — which are numbered. The good thing is if you drink this much Listerine, when it kills you, everyone will be impressed by your pearly whites.
This pint of mouthwash looks like the perfect way to start a night out. If you ordered a pint at a bar and they served you this, you would be one happy customer.
If you serve this to someone, you would have to go to a state ‘pennetentiary’ as they would die. These pasta plastic shavings look delicious but they’d have you ‘ravioling’ on the floor in pain considering that they’re not meant for human consumption.
If you eat this fake Italian meal, you would be sure to ‘pasta’ away. Ha, get it?
This looks like a science experiment gone right. This petri dish looks like it’s made up of delicious, strawberry Laffy Taffy. If Doc Brown focused on making this forbidden treat instead of the flux capacitor, then he and Marty would have saved themselves a lot of trouble.
Although it would kill you if consumed, it does look like it could give you some sort of intelligence-related superpower. Maybe in the short time you would have to live after consuming it, you could actually save your life.
Blue Glass Pebbles
These glass pebbles are definitely what’s in a jar on the shelf of your bohemian uncle’s apartment as soon as you walk in. Any normal person knows that he should have mints by the door instead of these random blue glass pebbles that look like mints — but for some reason aren’t.
In fairness to the uncle, these do look delicious but they would kill you so hopefully, he moves them or just gets rid of them altogether.
This is a rip-off of Colin the Caterpillar — despite looking like a trap from one of the Saw movies. It could also be mistaken for a dessert made by an inventive, up-and-coming pastry chef that’s attempting to “break the mold.” Still, if you ate this, you’d have an awful and painful death. But, it’s almost impossible to resist.
The chocolate looks good enough to be a Cadbury product, and the nails do kind of resemble flakes (sort of?). Okay, maybe we’re just grasping at screws here, but still.
These packing peanuts look like a new flavor of Cheetos — aero flavored. The fact that this isn’t a thing in real life is heartbreaking. So, we guess we’ll all have to settle for these packing peanuts. They won’t taste as nice despite their appetizing appearance.
So these packing peanuts may kill us, but they do look like game changers in the whole snack game… so it has to be worth it.
Let’s be honest — everyone has looked up at the ceiling at some point in their life and just imagined all the sweet and salty goodness that could come down from above. No one truly knows what the secret ingredient is to make the ceiling look like this.
Although it would kill us, we would definitely scrape the ceiling and bring whatever that stuff is to the cinema with us. Does anyone have the butter, though?
This item was a viral trend so it’s a literal fact that people all around the world could not resist the temptation of these Tide Pods. Thankfully, this trend didn’t result in anything fatal but if people ate enough of these poisonous pods, then they would die.
These small pods do appear like they would provide someone with a delicious minty aftertaste but unfortunately, that’s definitely not the case.
These bouncy balls look like they’ve come straight out of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. In fact, they could easily be mistaken as the gumball Violet Beauregarde was chewing on. Unlike the film, however, chewing these bouncy balls would definitely kill you.
These deceivingly colorful round balls of fun will hopefully be edible one day. Someone needs to tell Richard Branson to try his hand at sweet making.
So, you’re trying to tell us that this isn’t a honeycomb? We imagine that many people around the world had the same reaction as we did after seeing resin for the first time. It’s very hard to comprehend that it doesn’t taste as good as it looks. We mean, just look at it!
We’re struggling to resist the urge to drizzle this all over our ice cream — ya know, because it could kill us. It seriously looks like a honeycomb dream.
Who knew car oil could look so good? This oil resembles the finest golden syrup known to man. It looks so appetizing that it could be an IHOP syrup. Despite the fact that it would kill whoever eats it, anyone in their right mind would have to try it.
We feel like you would quickly realize it didn’t taste how it looks, but at least you tried it! Now, say goodbye to your loved ones!
Risai Water Balls
We have to be honest — it didn’t even enter our minds that these water balls aren’t actually food. What even are Risai Water Balls? And how can the answer not be a fun, refreshing snack?
It turns out that they are for home decoration, which was a surprise to us as well. Hopefully, it won’t kill anyone who eats it. Spoiler alert — it totally will.
It has finally been found; it’s what Indiana Jones must have been searching for — it’s the ancient gummy bear. Oh, wait. It turns out it’s not that but rather an Amber Bear Amulet that will kill you if you eat it. Yeah, we’re as confused as anyone.
It just doesn’t make sense. This must be from someone that’s a higher entity to us humans, playing a sick joke. It’s torture to find out that this isn’t actually food.
We’ve heard of a chocolate orange but this is just ridiculous. This beautiful, chocolatey brown gemstone would be sure to kill you. Still, it’s so appealing that it has to be noted how hard it would be to resist this. It’s unfair that this thing isn’t edible.
This gemstone looks like a great campfire item — tons of chocolate pieces melted together into perfection. Make sure to share, though, so you’re the favorite camper!
Willy Wonka Mushroom
Another mushroom concoction, however, this one looks like another item that is straight out of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. It appears that it’s made up of strawberries and cream. However, like everything else on this list, this could kill us if we dare to consume it.
If this were served to someone at a five-star restaurant as their dessert, it would ensure a five-star review from the customer. It looks unbelievable and as if it’s worth every bite.
Who knew that chickens and ostriches weren’t the only way to get eggs? These jellyfish are the next best thing as they even come fried and take out any labor that’s usually necessary for a healthy breakfast or lunch.
Next time you want to impress someone by cooking, whip out this bad boy and it’ll be sure to turn some heads. It will, unfortunately, kill whoever you serve it to, though.
If anyone’s birthday is coming up, then this is the perfect birthday cake — if you’re trying to kill them. This rainbow snow is definitely deadly but hey, it does make for a perfect Instagram opportunity.
Usually, people have to tell you not to eat the yellow snow, however, this time they have to warn against eating any of the snow.
This eroded brick looks like a piece of bread, which would be to die for (literally). Hopefully, though, consuming it would be worth the repercussions.
The perfect way to spice up this eroded brick would be to add a dash of pepper. We don’t think it would help, though, considering that you’d be dead in minutes.
A chocolate truffle is sure to brighten anyone’s day. Unfortunately, this chocolate truffle turns out to be a rock that, if consumed, would kill you — which would definitely put a damper on the day. However, this is still a risk that many people would take without hesitation.
If you came back to your hotel room and this chocolate truffle was underneath your pillow, you would be pleasantly surprised… until you realize that it’s not what you expected at all.
There’s an alternate dimension out there in which this plastic tub of fruity sorbet goodness is actually what it seems. And the whole world is happy and it doesn’t kill whoever eats it.
It’s a cruel world we live in. To whoever makes sorbet — please give us some quickly so we can finally take our minds off this.
This boot cream looks like the ultimate chocolate spread. It goes with everything — toast, pancakes, and Brogues. This boot cream would put the biggest smile on our faces… if only we were allowed to taste it.
See ya later, Nutella! There’s a new chocolate spread in town. It’s absolute perfection, even if it has the potential to kill.
You can’t tell us that these dials don’t resemble sweet treats that you’d find at a bakery. One dark chocolate and the other white chocolate, these bad boys would have your granny satisfied by the fire all winter long — ya know, apart from the fact that it would kill her shortly after she pops the first one into her mouth.
You might have to just settle for the standard Oreo and Toblerone treats at Christmas instead. It’s a shame but at least those things won’t kill you.
Who knew that if you were ever hungry during bowling and you couldn’t afford a snack, all you had to do was crack open a bowling ball. This massive Babybel cheese wheel would be fit for a small giant — and it would undoubtedly be a cheesy delight. If a normal human ate it, though, it would kill them.
To be honest, it now seems like a missed opportunity if Babybel doesn’t start making giant versions of their cheese wheels.
These laundry detergent packs are perfect for a campfire — although we do believe consuming them would kill you. With that, definitely don’t set them on fire and then eat them because there’s no way that could end well.
In case you don’t die by just eating one, then please do not risk it by eating all 50. Accept that your life was spared and move on. Well, they do look like marshmallows so maybe one more won’t hurt?
Eating this microwaved delicacy would have two contrasting effects. Firstly, it would make your whole body feel especially clean because it’s indeed soap. And secondly, it would kill you because again — you’re eating soap.
This soap looks like it could easily be a fancy dipping bread that’s served with a fine soup from a fancy restaurant. We guarantee that just by looking at it, no chef would be able to tell its undercover soap.
At first look, this is the most tender and appetizing piece of fried chicken to ever grace this world. A piece of chicken so perfect, it could stop wars. However, at second glance, it turns out that this is just a piece of calcite that, if consumed, would definitely kill you.
This deceiving trick seems too cruel. This calcite honestly resembles a piece of fried chicken that’s fit for a king. Anyone want a bite?
Aquarium gravel is the forbidden candy that’s just too tempting not to be consumed. Even though it would kill us if we consumed them, these rainbow nerds look like every kid’s dream. We imagine that these would explode with flavor. In reality, though, they’d break your teeth if you attempted to eat a handful of them.
Why would they make aquarium gravel so colorful and exciting to eat? There’s no need to tempt the world with this deadly, albeit enticing treat.
Are you kidding? How could anyone make these and expect them not to be eaten at every given opportunity? Office supply companies have produced and made these erasers to deliberately look like delicious popsicles. Without a doubt, these are very risky erasers.
We don’t think anyone will disagree when we say that these erasers would be consumed by most people if given the chance. But they’d die minutes later.
