Now THAT'S thinking creatively!

there will be no need to worry about carbon since cars will be using water/ hydrogen. I spoke to a scientist behind the project www.africanhydrogen.com amazing stuff ahead

This is truly an evolutionary product... Clearly we ar not far from life as depicted in the movie iRobot... I don't know if that's a good or bad thing, but i guess we should embrace the change.

Doug Vining RE: ICar

Technological change invariably has both positive and negative consequences. Let's hope the good outweigh the bad!

Neil Jacobsohn Putting traffic cops out of business!

Why try to catch drunker drivers when you can prevent them from driving in the first place? Surely the next step is driverless cars? See the MindBullet we wrote some monhs ago.

Neil Jacobsohn Drive with your mind!icar

And so we start to see the development of practical applications of technologies that allow us to use our minds to control the devices and networks around us. This is going to have a radical impact on all sorts of business processes and services.

Doug Vining Sounds just like the iCar

The Ford Evos concept vehicle has got all the smarts needed to make it an iCar. Now we just need a smart cloud to make all that networking work.

I'm just a bit worried that the Evos is so ahead of its time, that we'll never see it on the road. But it still looks cool.

Neil Jacobsohn Blind man driving a Google car

It continues to fascinate me that Google is a world leader in the technology of driver-less cars. This strongly reinforces the concept that your next competitor may well come from an industry utterly unrelated to yours - today, anyway.

Neil Jacobsohn 90% of cars networked by 2020?

How's this for a prediction - that by 2020 - less than seven years away - 90% of vehicles will be connected and networked. What will that mean - for safety, traffic congestion, transport costs and more?

Neil Jacobsohn How soon will we have driverless cars?

The idea of driverless cars has caught the public imagination, thanks mainly to Google's efforts. But most car manufacturers are working on this concept. So how far away is it from reality. Here's an excellent review of progress from MIT's Technology Review.

Neil Jacobsohn Connected cars with built-in apps arrive.

It sure is a long way from Henry Ford and his "any colour so long as it's black!" The motor car, as we know it, is set to go through a series of radical changes, and they are upon us. The future is here! But it won't stop there. Our MindBullet of May 2012 is rapidly becoming a reality.

Neil Jacobsohn Google and Apple compete for the space behind the wheel!

We all know that Google is the leading player in the development of driverless vehicles. But did you know that both Google and Apple have already developed sophisticated driver-assist services that can be used in today's vehicles?
Apple's CarPlay and Google's Android Auto are competing for that valuable real estate behind the wheel. Read about their efforts alongside.
Perhaps our MindBullet of 2010 is closer than we think!

Doug Vining Car wars

Now that everyone is accepting that, at some point in the future, we will have fully automated, driverless cars, the big question will be who dominates that industry. Will it be Uber, Apple, Tesla or some combination of Audi/BMW/Mercedes?

Here's an interesting article that explores the possibilities.

Anton Musgrave Shifts, Jobs, Relevance...

Combinatorial innovation is changing systems, models, markets, speed and many more elements of the future. One of these seismic shifts is autonomous vehicles and the impact on driver jobs, across all industries! The impacts will be huge and very few countries or companies are ready for this. Even fewer individuals even see the looming shifts about to crash i to their lives.

Now here's a leap forward in the radically changing world of vehicles - a mind-controlled car for disabled drivers! But that's only the tip of the iceberg. Imagine a world full of machines controlled by thought. The mind boggles - literally!

Neil Jacobsohn Who should your driverless car kill - you or someone else?

This has become one of the new-age philosophical debates as the age of autonomous vehicles approaches: who takes the fall? Interesting to see the human survival instinct is as strong as ever.
