2020 Driverless cars? LOL. Never. You can call them mini-trains, or micro-buses, or what you want,
but a car needs a driver. The day he realizes his prediction, a driverless car, media centered, will be the day there will be no car manufacturers anymore. There will be no point differentiating much, you buy the same mini-bus it will take it where you want to go at the same speed/feeling/sensations of everybody else's car. You might as well take the bus...wait!?
2020 is not going to happen. Remember the flying car, jetsons style? We should have those by now...alas. THAT would be fun. And cities in the sky.
As for his 2015 predictions, I think the things you can do with your voice is vastly overrated. I wonder if this guy tests the voice stuff in the car when actually using the car (not just testing), like I do.
I have a pretty decent voice control in the car (Win7 + CF), but I don't use it as much: music playing (I use the OEM Radio to listen to music, and the carputer for other stuff) can disrupt voice recognition for other stuff.
More importantly, voice control can be really disruptive for a friendly environment in the car, specially for the passengers - trust me, I do weekend trips a lot and voice control does not help - and the steering wheel buttons are just for music transport/volume. More things, controlled by voice? That can't be the future.
You press the voice button, music stops, everybody freezes, looking at each other - that's when the douche-driver starts talking to his carputer...LOL
Trust me, it's not fun using voice control in a car with 6 other happy people talking - as I do sometimes.
Mind control. That is the future...Or maybe something like MS Kinectic.
