June 22, 2009

Robot butlers may still be decades away, but Volvo has announced some equally awesome technology that could be prototyped as soon as 2011: a system that can electronically link up to ten cars into a convoy controlled by one professional driver. The nine trailing cars would link up via laser beams (!!!) and fly down the highway at speeds of up to 70mph while only three feet apart, leaving drivers to watch TV or read or, more likely, chew their nails to the quick in terror.
