I would love to see one of these in action. I'm real curious to see how it deals with situations that raise my blood pressure like the 4 way stop where someone won't go or goes out of turn.

I have over an hour commute each day. I would love to just sit back and maybe get a little reading, nap whatnot done. Fantastic this dude made it more realistically affordable.

Yeah, I'm in my car ~2 hours a day. If I could read/write, etc - I wouldn't mind it so much.

I've often wondered if this concept would ever be realized in my lifetime. :)
