Seems that car makers are having a lot of fun right now. For all the doom-mongering from disruptionistas around an imminent collapse of the mainstream manufacturers, there sure is a press-storm of news about their plans for our future. From stalking the edges of SXSW for the last few years to this year’s floor shows […] Read the post.
The car with the difference engine.
A conversation yesterday around the Picking up the pace post flicked a lightbulb (LED?) on about the current debate around what ‘drives’ cars; and if, perhaps, our cars are potentially this Century’s ‘difference engine’?
