Who remembers the 1980s television show "Knight Rider?"
As a child who grew up in the decade watching that show as very young child, it was easy to fall in love with the talking car that seemed to know exactly what to do even without its fearless leader, "Michael."
Another car that made waves in television and movies was the famed Batmobile, which has gone through plenty of changes over the years but still remains one of the more unique and gadget oriented vehicles on the silver screen.
But what if your actual car had the technology that was so reveled in these make believe cars from TV and movies? What if your car had your best interest in mind, even if you might not.
