Apple Working To Make The Roads Safer Than Before

Texting and driving makes you 23 times more likely to get into an accident while you are in a car. In order to stop that, Apple and other companies are working to implement features and devices that make this much harder to do.

Apple has already added car dash devices to their upcoming lineup in an effort to stop some of the texting and distractions that are possible, but now they are also working on something that will make it almost impossible to text while you are also driving, as reported by Apple Balla.

In order to do this, they are creating a device that will sense not only the speed of a car, but the position inside of the car that you are sitting in. This will help stop passengers from being blocked from texting as well. They are also working to create technology that will block incoming signals, but still allow users to have access in case of an emergency.

These will be important features since it is notoriously hard to stop people from texting and driving. Even after passing laws to ban the practice, it is hard to police something like this. When most people text, they hold the phone down where it can’t be seen, making it even more hazardous. If this is successful in stopping it, though, other companies will quickly follow. Stay tuned to see when these features make their debut, along with how successful they are.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
