RE: Dedicated to all the fucked up drivers out there : In loving Memory of Uncle Raymond

in WEEKEND EXPERIENCES6 months ago

I'm pretty sure it's already been invented as all good inventions are, but I think the commentary is the selling point - fuck bad drivers indeed. ED sounds just as annoying as the voice on Google Maps though, if not more so.

The capacity for robot error is a bit worrying: "I'm not tired, ED, I'm just squinting!".

still, it's a much needed solution to a big problem. On teh weekend some speeding idiot went through two fences and ended up upside down in someone's yard. We heard it from our place. He walked away without a scratch! Bizarre. Could have been worse though. You could call it Darwin Awards but the fact is bad drivers kill other people too!

great post!

Yeah, you're quite right. With the advancement in Smart cars and technology these days : Tesla, fortwo, fortfour e.t.c. i won't be surprised at all if an A.I similar to ED already exists.
However, they're still some features that ED has that I'm sure those other systems haven't integrated yet.

And ha! Certainly they'll always be that little hint of robot/computer error every now and then. Hopefully, ED would be improved over time.

And for real? Damn, that's rough. I'm glad he survived the crash though. But it's precisely why programs like ED would become more essential to society as time goes by. It's the future.
