There is an existing interface for controlling a car and wandering minds are handled in that system by keeping a hand on the steering wheel.  This might have uses for a paraplegic but not I think on a high speed weighty vehicle.  If anything drivers licenses should be much harder to get than they are now.  Clearly many people now driving are psychologically unsuited to operate such potentially dangerous vehicles.  Other countries use rigorous testing to award licenses.

college:problem with procrastination

Hello everyone, I have a very big problem, I miss 5 exams to graduate. I am two years out of the course, so I'm late. The problem is that I relaxed too much and ultimately, the procrastinating - it was my enemy. In the morning, I wake with good intentions, but with facebook, twitter, skype ...
