 We need rules for this ASAP!

Kinda takes all the "fun" out of parallel parking :))

yeah but imagine the maneuvers you could do

Not to mention that some people can really use all the help technology can provide them in this regard.

True, very true. We're already seeing cars with the ability to "park themselves"...only a matter of time before the tech is common place.

Or if your ride can not self park yet, you can always go Geta

Do you believe in a greater WIRELESS, an Invisible(WiFi) All Seeing(detecting those connected- at least if within 100'), All Knowing(all online data) Presence that we can draw upon for Wisdom(downloads & updates), Strength (wifi boni) and Comfort (porn) or do you turn your back on it  (Go Offline)?

From FB:

This 'Invisibility Scarf' Makes Its Wearer Disappear In Photographs

Definitely some limitations, but very cool tech. ;D

The newest in electric trucks. With an extended cab option this would make an awesome team command vehicle.

Nikola One

Also, keep track of their "off road" offering when it gets closer to production.  Full 4x4, 4 person seating, 0 - 60 in 3 sec and underwater capabilities....

More advances when it comes to cloaking technology:

Scientists move 1 step closer to creating an invisibility cloak

I'd even settle for someone remaking the Suzuki Brute.  It's not a well-known vehicle, but it had the rather amazing property of essentially having no turning radius, able to turn a 360 in place.  Not quite as cool as actually sideways movement, but pretty near.  My parents bought one when they got married.  Apparently my stepbrother is now in process of restoring it.  Actually I thought that was what they were about to show that Toyota doing, at first!

Well this looks interesting, a anime series about a town that is being used as a test bed for AR

So I was making my way though the Seattle Sprawl box set and in the Underground section they mention the corp, Fungitech. I did a bit of looking online and found that there are projects to make building materials that are stronger than concrete, mold, fire and water resistant.

Or more conventional building materials.

Not that Bitcoin is new or anything, but having the WEF bring it up as a possible core financial tool (or the technology of blockchains at least) gets us one step closer to just having Nuyen actually take over the world (though, it'd probably Nuyaun these days ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )

We have entire genres of fictional works in every medium conceivable explaining why this is a bad idea.

*sigh* I'll send flowers.
