See Sedric drive: Volkswagen shows off first autonomous concept car

Sedric is driven by a voice-controlled AI agent

Earlier this year at CES, Toyota and Honda revealed their vision of an autonomous, connected, companion car, and now Volkswagen is entering the mix with Sedric. 

Sedric is Volkswagen's first crack at a fully autonomous car, and as such, it doesn't have pedals or a steering wheel. Instead, the concept car is summoned by pressing a button and "driven" by a voice-controlled AI agent. Passengers pile into its spacious interior through two sliding glass doors and can enjoy a movie on the car's OLED windscreen.

Sedric is part of Volkswagen's "Together Strategy 2025," which focuses on the creation of sustainable mobility. The idea is that one day, people will depend on their cars to drop their kids off at school, pick up the groceries, or even converse with the vehicle as if they were friends. But for now, this is all just in the imagination of a few engineers.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
