Your Own “Kenguru” ?

Discovered this while browsing my social media feeds this evening. It’s genius and such a good advancement in electric cars and transportation technology. I love the compact size which makes it easy to maneuver and find parking, especially in urban areas like Chicago. What I like best is that it offers folks who are wheel chair bound much more independence in their travels and not have to rely on expensive unfitting of vehicles or have to wait around from the wheel chair transit systems to get around.

Here’s a video from the makers of the “Kenguru” showing how a wheel chair bound person can utilize it as their primary transportation to and from work.

Google Driver-less Vehicles

What would you do with the time you spend in your daily commutes if all you had to do was get in the car, enter your destination and press Go?

The Google Prototype Driver-less car is fast getting around this holiday season in California with plans to have approximately 100 of these vehicles operating in the next year on actual roads. Even at the current 25 MPH speed limit, it’s a step in the right direction to minimize in-attentive drives who often use their commute time to perform other tasks while driving. As testing of the prototype progresses over time, I’m sure they will be able to update the software to react much quicker and provide safe operations at higher speeds of movement for the vehicle.

In urban areas like Chicago, it’s a great alternative to traditional public transportation offering some flexibility and privacy. It’s also a way for those who transitionally have limitations to driving (seniors, visually impaired, persons with other disabilities) to be able to operate their own vehicles without having to rely on others to get them around.
