Humans will one day render as useless walking bones, because machines will take over all the chores and whatever else that humans don’t feel like doing.  We can already take a peek at the future by seeing car manufacturers going the route of driverless car.  The video right after the break talks about how Toyota, Audi, and other well known car brands are working and researching on driverless cars.  So far, their prototypes seem to drive themselves alright.  So, I guess they got the driverless down, but how safe will their driverless vehicles be?  This is why I think we might not see this type of cars at least for few years on.  Nonetheless, I hope they can work out the safety issues for these driverless cars soon, because I’m itching to read, blog, eat, snore, and scratch my itchy back whenever I’m on the road outing.

A year back or two, I don’t remember the time exactly, South Korea had employed few robots to be school teacher and a prison somewhere (I forgot where) had employed robots to be prison guards.  Perhaps, more of these machines will even do more stuffs for us humans soon.  Imagine, army of robots/machines go to a piece of land, build bunch of more specialized machines on spot, and from the ground up these machines together build a building or house that can, in time, expand, contract, remodel, and whatever else that the owner of this futuristic house wants to do.  Let just hope, more machines/robots don’t mean more bad things.  Exciting about the future?

With Viper SmartStart, One Can Use iPhone 4S’ Siri To Start, Stop, Unlock, Lock, Arm, And Disarm A Car

According to PCWorld‘s article “Siri Can Unlock Your Car, Can’t Drive It Just Yet,” a developer named Brandon Fiquett was able to hack iPhone 4S’ Siri so his car could be automatically started, stopped, opened trunk, locked, armed, unlocked, and disarmed.  Not all cars could use Brandon Fiquett’s Siri hack unless their cars had installed Viper SmartStart.

Viper SmartStart is not a product that could be installed easily, because you have to know your car electrical wiring pretty well.  Viper SmartStart has their own app for various smartphones, but you can’t use voice to command Viper SmartStart to command your car.  Brandon Fiquett is smart enough to let Siri takes over the function of Viper SmartStart’s app.

Check out the video right after the break to see Siri in action in regarding to how a car owner can tell Siri to tell the car to do things.
