You and I both know that this is the only GPS worth a tinker’s damn. Do you really have to think about it? Mio’s new GPS system gives you directions using the voice of KITT.

Bear from AI becomes reality, only talks GPS

Bear from AI becomes reality, only talks GPS
Looks like the Teddy bear from AI has now come to life. Only problem is, he loves GPS and won’t shut up about it. I guess the idea is to put some Snuggles fabric softener-like cuddliness into a gadget, thereby making it more personal. Which is great and all, if I’m not worried that it will come to life, gain a soul and kill me, then use my corpse as armor while it kills others.

This cuddly but potentially deadly creature was created by iXs Research Corporation and is hopefully not the future of GPS navigation. It will talk and give you the directions you need. It’s arms even point you in the right direction. Get this. It has an alcohol detection sensor in its neck, so it will give you an attitude about driving drunk. Not flying out the window and hitting a puddle, it won’t!

Rear view GPS mirror
Shenzhen MCD Electronics has rolled out this so far unnamed rear view mirror that shows you more then the cars you’re leaving in the dust. Some features include : GPS navigation system, SD/MMC memory card slot, Stylus pen, LED backlight, 1300mAh Li-Ion battery, Reverse gear sensor, Camera, Bluetooth connectivity.

No word on cost yet, and anyway coming from a Chinese wholesaler, this probably won’t be headed to the US anytime soon officially.
