Audi's concept at CES comes with weird punctuation in the name

It's called the Audi AI:ME and Audi built it to showcase what they can do (and what can be done) in terms of autonomous mobility. I totally get the reasoning behind this even though I think we're unlikely to see any of this in the real world in the next few years. The idea is, you can in the car and it drives you from A to B while you watch a movie (this concept comes with a humongous 48-inch on-demand, transparent display) or order food or whatever. I personally strongly dislike the idea of self-driving cars but that's the world we're living in. So, in theory, I will allow this to drive me from my home to Mugello racetrack just as long as I can then drive an Audi R8 V10 around the actual track any day of the week. Deal?

  • The interior is a blatant copy of the BMW iNext concept right down to the ironing board armrest

  • I believe that all drivers reside in one of two places. There is the person who views driving as a means to an end ... pragmatic and indifferent about the whole thing ... gets them from point A to B. Then ... there is the rest of us. The act of driving and the vehicle in which we drive matters to us as driving is a cerebral and physically pleasing activity. Our internal gyroscope not only enjoys movement but requires it on some level. So the mode is important. Self driving cars and even the thought of them are distasteful. More importantly, it further removes the driver from being engaged, which countless drivers all ready are by texting and talking while driving. I don’t want to share the road with those people. As a businessman on the road, I am amongst them at 80 mph ... all day ... every day. On my business card, it says “don’t text me” ... such is my irritation with today’s driving community. They make being on the road unnecessarily dangerous and less fun. Apologies for the rant ... but you asked ... lol

    • The vast majority of car journeys are out of necessity, not pleasure. Most people still spend 90 % of their time at the wheel either stuck in traffic or running errands and whether they love cars or they don't makes zero difference. You said it...

    • Your point is well taken ... but still ... over 37 years of working, I’ve chosen driving down the road over flying a desk. That’s not a random decision. I consciously chose the freedom of self employment and more specifically outside sales in...
