SKYNET is now taking over our cars.
It was only a matter of time before this happened, and now it has. Hyundai has just announced that its all-new 2015 Genesis sedan will feature an infotainment system that’s fully compatible with Google Glass. In other words, the moment a Google Glass-wearing driver enters their Genesis, the car’s Blue Link infotainment system will sync with the device. Owners will also be able to download a Blue Link Glassware app to help manage the relationship between device and car.
Abilities such as remote start, remote locking, and vehicle finder will be the main features offered. In addition, there will be push notifications that will tell the driver when car maintenance is needed. Scheduling a dealer visit is also possible with the wearable device. Wearables are a great way to extended the ownership experience outside of the vehicle by leveraging these small screens to quickly access remote features and deliver timely vehicle information," according to Hyundai. It all sounds interesting, but wouldn’t something like Google Glass further contribute to distracted driving? Something to think about.
