No one forgets to charge their phone. Except you. ;-)


Wrong. I also forget to turn it on.

But how can you avoid hazards coming up if you're looking backwards? :P

You can have a passenger shouting, "left a bit, right a bit" a la Golden Shot (you're too young to remember. :-))

However, I do believe that if you're the kind of person who forgets to charge their mobile phone, you probably shouldn't be allowed out unsupervised.

Not much use for me, eh? :mrgreen:

Even more important for you to look forwards whilst driving ;-)

Exactly but there's little true concern amidst the hype.
It's all energy conversion and it has to come from a fuel of some sort.

Not just generating (although I suppose there will be a lot of petrol and diesel to burn . . . ), it's the distribution too. I'd hazard a guess that an entire cul d sac plugging in cars to charge wouldn't be too good for the distribution network.
My own views. For better or worse :)
