This is a thread about cars & the technology in them.
Over the past few years, technology has evolved in vehicles, changing the way we citizens drive. It has also improved various safety features. Earlier in the past decade, we've seen cars with satellite radio capabilities, and now, we use our voice to tell the car what we want to do. As a matter of fact, on the topic of safe driving, it has ways to connect your smartphone via bluetooth or USB so that way you wouldn't have to take a gander at your phone while you drive. Just a few simple voice commands like "Call <name>" or "Send SMS to <name>" and you're pretty much ready to go.
Lately in this year's car market, technology has become a lot more modern. We're now seeing vehicles with rear-view cameras, cars that park by themselves, and cars with wi-fi integrated in them (there are some that allow you to connect to Facebook or Twitter or...any social network website). I have a close online friend of mine who's car, a BMW, has an LCD Dashboard projector, that projects his whole dashboard and tells him the speed, the oil & gasoline meters, and car temperature.
What do you think about the future of automobile technology? What will we see next? Do you think these technology improvements makes us safer drivers? Why or why not?
