Shyanne B News Every week I will be sharing news stories and developments. So this week I will be talking about a technology development that news just released. This product will not be released until 2020. At the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas scientists and other graphical designers come together to show the technology they have came up with. What a designer has come up with will change the development of cars as we know today. The Mitsubishi Electric Emerai is a car that will provide a look of what cars will look like in the future. When looking inside the Emirai, it is clear that it is not a regular car. Some examples are; the seat will automatically adjust to the driver's height for comfort and the car is in tune with the driver's needs. It is able to do that because the car has a camera and cardiograph that Mitsubishi Electronics co-developed with the National University Kyushu Institute of Technology in Japan. If the Car senses a driver needs sleep, the car will offer nearest rest stops. Drivers could use their hand motion in the direction they want a settings changed. In all this technology is one to change the auto-motive ability. Not only is it cool to look at, it could make driving more safe.
