Cars are one of the most significant human creations. They changed our cities. They changed our lives. They changed everything. But in the next thirty years, this technology will itself change enormously. If Google get their way, are we all going to be ferried around in tiny electric bubble-cars? Or will we watch robots race a bionic Lewis Hamilton? And what about the future of classic cars? In Autopia, presenter of The Gadget Show and former executive producer of Top Gear Jon Bentley celebrates motoring's rich heritage and meets the engineers (and coders) who are transforming cars forever. From mobile hotel rooms to electric battery technology; from hydrogen-powered cars to jetpacks, Autopia is the essential guide to the future of our greatest invention. Fully designed with illustrations and photographs, this will be the perfect Christmas gift for car and technology enthusiasts everywhere.

The ideas in this book were aided by the current state of Artificial Intelligence and is the first book of its kind. The future of cars takes the reader on a trip into the near and very distant future of Mankind. It is not only the future of cars and trucks and other forms of transportation. It is also about the future of everything including the Future of Education, the Future of Jobs, the Future of Love and the Future of Government as well as the overall future of human civilization. This book is a must read for anyone who can appreciate the current predicament that we are in as a human race and who wishes to participate in the only sane way out of that predicament. The technology that we possess today is set to either destroy us or save us. The choice is ours to make. Step one in making the right choice? Downloading this book. Step Two: Telling the world about it. We begin with the Future of Cars because the American economy and later the world economy would be decided by these monster machines that dominate the landscape. Next, we talk about the future of Education, because our present system of growing great citizens in just a few short years is failing us and it must be replaced and soon. We have the solution. Next we talk about the future of jobs because, based on our educational system failure, we are not producing enough of the jobs that most people need to support their families and live the American Dream. We have the solution. Next, we talk about the future of Love, because love and especially love-making is what brought so many of us kicking and screaming into our present situation of living on a planet that cannot sustain us all under our present systems. We have the solution. Next, we talk about the future of Government because we are trying to force a system of rules and regulations that were installed centuries ago and are not fitted out to work under our current technological advances. We have the solution. We are now beginning to use driver-less cars, otherwise known as Autonomous vehicles. Soon, it will become obvious to most of us that we can also use this same Artificial Intelligence programming that will prevent us from crashing into each other for Autonomous Government that will prevent the entire world from crashing in on itself. We have the solutions. The New York Times has a list of the best-selling books in America. This book is not on that list yet, but with your help, it could be there soon and thereupon soon accepted by the vast numbers of readers that we will need to save the planet. If we don't all pitch in to help save the planet and to get this book on the New York Times Bestsellers list, we're all doomed to be reading books by celebrities and notables who are just rehashing the same worn out cliches and nothing will change for the better. It will only get worse. The ideas in this book are completely original human thought and there is nothing more crucial in the world today than the increased supply of original human thought that solves problems. The ideas herein must be supported by readers who want to enter into the realm of invention, innovation and the most preferred gateway into the future.

A computer beats the reigning human champion of Go, a game harder than chess. Another is composing classical music. Labs are creating life-forms from synthetic DNA. A doctor designs an artificial trachea, uses a 3D printer to produce it, and implants it and saves a child's life. Astonishing technological advances like these are arriving in increasing numbers. Scholar and entrepreneur Vivek Wadhwa uses this book to alert us to dozens of them and raise important questions about what they may mean for us. Breakthroughs such as personalized genomics, self-driving vehicles, drones, and artificial intelligence could make our lives healthier, safer, and easier. But the same technologies raise the specter of a frightening, alienating future: eugenics, a jobless economy, complete loss of privacy, and ever-worsening economic inequality. As Wadhwa puts it, our choices will determine if our future is Star Trek or Mad Max. Wadhwa offers us three questions to ask about every emerging technology: Does it have the potential to benefit everyone equally? What are its risks and rewards? And does it promote autonomy or dependence? Looking at a broad array of advances in this light, he emphasizes that the future is up to us to create—that even if our hands are not on the wheel, we will decide the driverless car's destination.

Starting in the late 1960s but especially in the 70s, the most innovative Italian coachbuilders from Bertone to Pininfarina, took on a new and creative mindset where it came to car design. With fantastical wedge-shaped speedsters, their goal was nothing less than reimagining the car. Many of their ideas - as reflected in the concept vehicles in this book - ended up on the scrap heap of design history, while other concepts have remained influential up to the present. Rainer W. Schlegelmilch, best known for his spectacular Formula 1 photography, captured all of this 70s explosion of automotive creativity with his unique photographic eye. With his artful staging, the angular concept car silhouettes took on the curvy and alluring forms of models. Through these futuristic design concepts from the 70s, we get even closer to the spirit of that decade - one that continues to hold us in its thrall
