cars that smile at you, or give you the finger
it seems like the japanese have done what i've always wanted. make a car have more than a horn and some lights. Toyota engineers have patented a way to use multicoloured lights to signal other users on the road
. the article goes on to point out things you can do like make a row of lights across the front of the car (knight rider-esque
) that makes the car smile, frown or even cry!
this is amazing stuff. imagine what you can do. i'm wetting myself with expectation. i'd like my car to have a tough personality, but have a caring and compassionate inside. oh, and i'd like it to have automatic transmission.
