If you grew up in the 80s, then you’ve probably dreamed about having a car like KITT from the classic Knight Rider TV series. Although the tech that powered KITT seemed far off in the heady days of the Reagon administration, the fact of the matter is that we now fully inhabit the future that 80s futurists dreamed of. Evidence of such can be found in the Dashbot — a $49 gadget that will turn your regular ol’ dumb car into a smartcar.
Made by the same folks who designed the PocketCHIP, to say that the Dashbot was inspired by KITT is somewhat of an understatement. It even has a glowing red LED interface that pulses as it speaks to you! Other capabilities include Bluetooth connectivity, text messaging functionality, music playback, turn-by-turn navigation via Google Maps, and more.
