This is a new product that I have been testing out and really like. It is called the Parker Tech, and it is a self-driving car control system. The self-driving system goes over a series of sensors in the car, and then the car’s computer, and then the driver. The driver can see the road ahead of him, and then decide to make a move or turn.
I have my doubts about this whole idea of self-driving cars, and the fact is that the technology already exists, if you look at the top 10 or so cars on the market today. However, if you get a self-driving car into a parking lot, it becomes a very real possibility that something might go wrong and kill you.
I’m not going to get into detail about what is or isn’t possible, but I can tell you that the technology is already there. It’s just a question of whether we’ll take advantage of it, and how.
That’s exactly what I’m talking about. Think about it. I have no doubt about the technology. What I do have concerns is the way it’s being implemented. Is it safe? Is it effective? How many people will get hurt? I don’t know enough about the technology to make a judgement.
Parker is the first company to put a self-aware machine in a consumer’s pocket, albeit a very small pocket. The company’s founder, a former Google executive named Parker, said he is more than ready to turn his hand to the creation of something more than just a little tech. Now he tells us that the technology he created is already in the hands of more than a few consumers. But it’s very much a “we’re just getting started” sort of thing.
It reminds me of the time when the company that created the first consumer-level self-aware device (Google’s Cardboard, aka the “Glass”) didn’t even have a name, let alone a product, and just called it “Light.” What a ridiculous name for a device that everyone assumed was meant to be used within Glass.
The same thing happened with Facebook. When the company that created the original social network came out with the name “Facebook”, they had no idea what they were doing, and it was quickly decided that it was better to call it “Facebook” and leave it at that. But it turns out the company was just that much smarter than the people who worked on the product.
Because they had such an awesome name, people immediately thought Glass was a mobile application. But the fact is that many people have actually used Glass, and their usage has been phenomenal. At the very least, it’s a good idea for Glass to have an app store. And since Glass is basically a handheld phone, app stores would be a good idea.
Yes, it would be good if Glass had an app store, but it also makes a lot of sense to have a mobile app. If you want to see what the people who use Glass are doing, you can just click on the Glass icon in your browser. If it actually offers something that makes you feel like you’re actually using Glass, it could get a lot of usage.
As it turns out, Glass is already doing a lot of that. The Glass app can take screenshots, play video clips, and do other things. It can also send messages to Glass users. What it doesn’t do is make your phone ring. So when you want the people nearby to know that you’re using Glass, you just pull the phone out and put it anywhere that doesn’t block your line. (Although you could probably make a video call using the phone, too.
