DIY Self-Driving Car

A self-driving Tesla comes with a hefty price tag, but a college student has given his Honda Civic similar abilities for a fraction of the cost.

Brevan Jorgenson has unveiled a device that replaces the rear-view mirror, which controls the brakes, accelerator and steering – and it only cost $700 to build.

The DIY device uses the hardware design and software shared online by Comma.ai last year, which had originally planned to upgrade cars with the technology.

LATEST RUMOR 

The latest rumor regarding Apple’s iPhone suggests it will have a front-facing camera and infrared module that senses 3D space. 

The sensors in the phone are said to detect the location and depth of objects around it. 

The complete 3D system would send invisible IR light signals out from the phone and then wait for them to hit objects and return using the 1.4 megapixel IR receiver. 

The camera would be used for a range of applications including, placing the user’s face on a character in a game, facial recognition, iris scanning and overall improved selfies.

He thought he saw a mirage in the distance. He saw someone coming toward him, but he hadn’t seen anyone in days. Being in the middle of nowhere, he thought. “This can’t be true.” read more
