Internet Enabled Cars – Is it Realistic?
With a lot of new improvements being made everyday, with the advancement of the internet, and with new gadgets evolving daily, one great technology that is starting to come into the spotlight that we can’t help but notice is the advent of internet enabled cars.
There has been a lot of news lately that auto companies are now starting to create cars that have full support for the internet. One great example of such cars is the Peugeot BB1. This new car looks awesome and portable – read this article on Dvice.com or visit the picture below to see how it looks.
The question now is:
Are Internet Enabled Cars Realistic?
I’d like to believe they can be very effective, depending on the situation, but I’d also like to emphasize the point that internet enabled cars have their own dangers. Here are some situations where having an internet enabled car might be advantageous.
Internet Access on The Go: Connectivity can be quite a problem if you’re someone who loves to move around or who has a lot of business that requires you to be on the go, especially if you don’t have an internet deal with your ISP to help you out. Having an internet enabled car can make a huge difference because it doesn’t matter where you are in the world, you’re always assured that you’ll have consistent access to the internet.
When Traveling the World: Having internet enabled cars can also be advantageous if you’re someone wanting to travel the world. It doesn’t matter if you’re in a big city or in a remote part of a third world country, you will always have access to the internet. Your ISP might not be able to offer you internet connectivity in another part of the world, but with some advanced technology, you will be able to use the broadband internet that is in your car no matter where you are in the world.
It is The New Portability: When we talk about portability, a lot of people think about things they can hold. Even though you can’t hold your car, having an internet enabled car can make a whole lot of difference and can be one of the best forms of portability, since you can access the internet anywhere you are without being disturbed by anyone.
The above are just a few advantages of using a broadband internet enabled car, but do you really think there are disadvantages? I can’t think of many, but there’s a particular disadvantage I think we have to consider.
High Rate of Accidents: Even with the fact that we’re yet to be using internet enabled cars, there have been reports of accidents in every part of the world. We human beings can sometimes be very careless, especially with the addition of social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, so I think that having broadband internet enabled cars can bring about a high rate of accidents. The best way to prevent this is to educate people about the best practices of using a broadband internet enabled car and making them aware of the dangers. This won’t put an end to high accident rates, but would reduce it to the barest minimum.
