    German inventors build car that comes when you call it

    Researchers in Germany say they're now one step closer to bringing the nightmare fantasy of unmanned driving to life. A group of scientists have created a vehicle they call the MadeInGermany or MIG. Users can call up the vehicle via their smart phone or iPad and it will automatically chart the quickest and most efficient route to the user's destination sans driver. Using an array of sensors, the vehicle generates a 3D image of its surroundings, helping it to navigate around pedestrians, other vehicles and bicyclists. Should the user decide to take control of the vehicle, they can operate the controls via that same smartphone or other mobile device.

    I'm down to drink until I tell you to come drive me home.

    We seriously do need a better system for that though, you would think by now we would have something to help out drunk drivers. Why do Bars even have parking lots? Do they really expect people not to drive there?

    Well since they are still testing them, there is a driver in the car. that can make over-rides and such. So Im assuming whoever was in the car at the time hopped out and was like REALLY?! oh cmonnnnn!
