Car News! Coming soon: self-driving cars and games on the windows
We’re still some way off from jet packs for all or even flying automobiles but it looks as if being in cars is set to become both weirder and more fun over the years to come.
Following in the tyre-tracks of Ford, Volvo and erm, Google, BMW have unveiled their driverless car, which uses four types of sensors, radar, cameras, laser scanners and ultrasound distance sensors (it says here).
When driven (or not driven as the case may be) on pre-mapped roads it’ll use all of its spooky, magical technology to navigate along the highway without crashing into stuff, even doing a spot of overtaking if the variables are all in place. Have a gander…
But how are we going to amuse ourselves if the car is driving itself? Well you could drink booze, have sex or maybe fanny about playing computer games on one of the windows. Yes, the smart window is coming to the automobile.
Wisely restricted to the windows in the back, Israeli boffins have developed technology that will allow passengers to write messages and play games on the window throughout the journey. Have a gander…
Amazing scenes. Back when we were kids, it was all about writing rude words on steamed-up windows. Have we REALLY come that far?
