The Steering Wheel of the Future is Amazing


As autonomous cars, or cars that can drive themselves, come closer and closer to being a mainstay of our roads, car engineers and manufacturers are faced with one particular problem: How to communicate between the driver and the car as to when the driver needs to be actively controlling the vehicle? Well, this brand new steering wheel technology helps solve that exact problem. The lights on it aren't just for show, they serve as buttons that allow the car's computer to know when the driver has their hands on the wheel and when they do no. It can also serve as a control pad for various points around the car itself.
