ICYMI: Channel your Wall-E future with self-driving tech

ICYMI: Channel your Wall-E future with self-driving tech

Today on In Case You Missed It: Nissan created smart chairs that autonomously move themselves while people are seated in them, modeled off of the car maker’s ProPILOT driving system. The chairs are being used in Japan to keep people neatly in line outside of restaurants and when one chair has been vacated, it will move itself to the end of the row, while everyone else is bumped up.

Meanwhile, Elon Musk inspired and frustrated with his new plan to get folks to Mars on the largest rocket ever constructed, which he’s calling the Interplanetary Transport System. The announcement was made with few details, but he’s the original Tony Stark so we’re willing to give him some room on it.

The Komatsu autonomous dump truck video is here, but if you need a break from all this technology, bliss out to a coral timelapse video that will make you appreciate them anew. As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.
