YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO BUY YOUR VERY OWN HANDS FREE VEHICLE IN 2015

A new company in San Francisco has invented a hands-free system that allows a car to steer itself down a highway while you just sit there in comfort, zoning out.

While the Cruise RP-1 can’t guide you down roads with traffic lights and stop signs, its sensors do keep you in the center of lanes while maintaining a safe speed and a proper distance from cars in back and in front – great for long distance road trips.

The autopilot system features two cameras, a radar function, GPS, mobile sensors, and an on-board computer.

The system then controls acceleration, steering, and braking.

And, amazingly, this system is scheduled to be released to the public in 2015.

We’re close. Very close. (Mashable)
