I first found out about this from a commercial I saw on TBS.

The commercial I saw.

And found out this was completely true. WTF?

That's brilliant, and kind of idiotic.

It's awesome that technology has come that far, where you can remotely control a car from your own computer. Even though I'm sure there will be more than a few crashes, with a keyboard not reproducing the same sensitivity of a car's actual controls.

But the idiotic part: what's the point of driving it online? You get no feel for the car. Maybe it's not as smooth a ride as you want. Maybe the brakes aren't as responsive as you need. An online test drive doesn't provide tactile feedback.

It's cool in theory, but I don't see the use. Meh/Worried

In a world of modern technology, instead of working on realistic goals to better humanity, we get a online test drive for a car. Very Happy It's brilliant!
