    Very cool. Should these become mainstream, I see it being the next medical debate: does all the signals these things emit cause cancer? Find out at 11!

    I really like the idea, described in that BBC article, about supplementing GPS systems with QR blocks at "landing strips". My car's GPS never knows where I am when I leave from my parking spot in the big garage by my office; if the car could "look" at a QR square at the front of the parking spot, it would know just where I am even though shielded from the GPS satellites.

    Can't copy on the iPad for some reason, but the one comment re: "why would you even put money into it?" irks me. The same people that enjoy things brought about by technological innovations are the first ones shooting down something new. Do these h humans just lack imagination?

    SARTRE autonomous road-train enters final phase with trio of Volvos [w/video]

    Utilizing a combination of cameras and radar-based sensors, the vehicles in the platoon can travel up to 55 miles per hour while maintaining a 20-foot gap between each other. An electronics-packed truck takes the lead and handles driving for all the vehicles in the group, meaning there's still at least one driver in control.
