On display at the CES convention in Vegas, is the Byton smart car, with its 49 inch driver display, accompanied by a companion screen embedded in the steering wheel.

Everything you need to know about your driving experience is right there on the big screen including, I presume, the locations of the nearest hospitals and funeral homes.

There are some concerns voiced that pedestrians and giant boulders in the street might make the driver take his eyes off the screen and miss an important commercial message, but fear not ... an even bigger screen may alleviate that problem.

From the article:

"'What we want to try to do is merge your life outside of the car with your experience inside the car,' explained Jeff Chung, head of Byton's Intelligent Car Experience division."

I thought that's what the windows were for. As cars get smarter, drivers will get stupider.

The loop that's going to occur is a whole lot of people that quickly jump aboard the smartcar wagon will be driving obsolete vehicles in six months. The technology is advancing very fast.

The hype cycle is like a bullwhip: if you get too close to it you'll feel pain.
