Super cool. Super cool. Super. Cool. I love it. But how close must you be to the car if it is given directions via a wifi connection?? And if the car would ever be able to go out on the open road, how much more of a delay would there be if something were to go wrong(ex-A semi runs a red light) could te operator tap the brake button and the van would stop in time? Lol just very curious about this... And "Artificial Intelligence Group"? Uh oh. I'm sensing there is going to be a monopoly and major economic crash with this company, that probably uses "AIG" for a logo. Hahaha
