5 fascinating cars of the future and the “Kid”
Starting my life in late 70s I was grew up watching TV series like knight rider. The kid from Knight rider was “the car of the future” and I guess it will always be like that. The car that can talk! Can drive by its self, Jump (fly!!) and go through anything, almost indestructible. Yet none of the future car promises nothing like that :P …..The blog on ted 5 fascinating cars of the future reminds me how fantastic the future car from past used to be.
It’s 2012. we are yet to see our fair share of flying cars. Some promised car are on there way in!
issan’s PIVO 2 commuter car
GM’s Electric Networked-Vehicle
Google’s self-driving car
Shelley, the autonomous race car
In a new TEDTalk, Chris Gerdes of the Center for Automotive Research at Stanford (awesomely abbreviated as CARS) explains that he and his team are busy at work developing the motor vehicles of the future. One of their starting points? Studying the brainwaves of the best motorists in the world — professional race car drivers. The idea is to combine computer technology with human intuition and skill behind the wheel.
In honor of Gerdes’ work, here is a look at five cars we may be seeing a lot more of in the future. Sure, they don’t fly. But, hey, many allow you to sit back and enjoy the ride without having to do a thing.
And to all Knight rider fans! the following Video will bring back some of your old memories!! The dreams of future perfect world!!
