As you probably already know if you are reading this blog, it was originally intended to showcase my graphic novel which is a neo-noir futuristic thriller. It's dark and very Blade Runner like in a not so distant future. To keep things interesting while I work on the story and art (which can take years) I post some of the latest or future technologies that can and do appear in my graphic novel.

This year, CES has outperformed to supply us with future tech. These interesting images are of their futuristic self driving cars. You can bet I'm going to include one of these in my story.

The R.E.A.D. (Real-time Emotion Adaptive Driving) system tracks passengers' state of mind by monitoring facial expressions, heartbeat and other bio-markers. Then it optimizes the cabin to influence you in the direction of a better mood, using lighting, audio, climate control, aromatherapy and even seat vibration.

All of this is great news if you are terrified of the sun and birds. Take a look at this bizarre video showcasing the cars mood altering capability.
