Would you like to have a self-driving car? Glenn got to drive something very close to one over the weekend and it was very, very cool. But new technology means sacrificing quite a bit of personal information to the growing surveillance state.
Glenn said he got to driver a "driver assist" vehicle to church, and it was unbelievable.
"I drove it over the weekend, and I drove it to church. And on the way home, my kids are like freaked out by this," he said. "You push what used to be cruise control, and you set the cruise control, and then you -- and then you decide how many car lengths you want to be from the car in front of you. So I set it to like two car lengths. Set it at church. I did not touch the gas or the brake until I got home."
"It's insane. You're steering the car. The car won't let you go out of your own lane. You put on the blinker, and you can switch lanes. You don't put on the blinker and you just kind of drift. First, the steering wheel vibrates. Then if you don't correct, it automatically corrects for you and keeps you in your lane."
While Glenn thought the car was insanely cool, he fears that it will cause the next generation that grows up with it to lose another skill.
"I am so schizophrenic on this, it's a love/hate relationship with technology," he explained. "I think my kids, eight and ten, the youngest kids, I think they'll both get their driver's licenses, but it won't matter."
According to Glenn, the car had a number of cameras on it as well. It enabled him to do some cool stuff, but again made him nervous.
"I could drive this car, like at high speeds, I think, in reverse. Because it has cameras everywhere. This is my worst nightmare. I don't even know how many cameras it has on it. Has cameras everywhere. When you back up, it puts the backup camera on your screen. So this camera, the screen splits when you go into reverse. And it shows you an aerial view of the car," Glenn said.
Glenn said there were a number of cameras on the car that helped create a composite image of your surroundings, placing your vehicle at the center.
