Those films must have been equally popular in Japan because Nissan recently made a pretty big impression at the CEATEC show in Japan demoing it's latest simulation of self driven cars with the their Nissan Leaf.
It was a big step up from their self parking demo last year. So much so that it attracted Toyota CEO, Akio Toyoda, to come give the technology a spin.
