Electronic Nagging Backseat Driver Unveiled
from the shut-up-already dept
Someone anonymous writes in with a link to a story about IBM Middle East and UAE University unveiling a car with a “safety” device that consists of some voice technology that alerts the driver as soon as he or she has gone over the speed limit. The anonymous submitter notes, “I have a feeling not everyone would enjoy this innovation….” Yes, it’s basically the annoying backseat driver in your car who is always telling you to slow down. Still, it’s a step up from a car that gives you automatic speeding tickets (the backseat cop in your car) or the car that sprays the driver with water if it senses they’re falling asleep (the backseat bozo the clown in your car), which is also from IBM.
