Apple once imagined a self-driving car with retractable bumpers - at least, that's according to a patent filing from 2016.

Multiple news outlets have picked up on the story.

The exact reasoning behind retractable bumpers on self-driving cars is unknown. It's also unknown if Apple is still working on it.
