Self Driving

This video by Tesla, titled “Full Self-Driving Hardware on All Teslas” is very cool.

I wonder, what would happen in cities like Bangalore, where it is almost always bumper to bumper traffic. How will these cars react? Will they get frustrated and after a while of bad traffic and dealing with people with almost zero common sense or should I say road sense, will these engines just change themselves into Transformers and start walking over people? or will they self destruct because of the pressure? What happens if any of these hardware malfunctions? or if someone hacks into these systems and corrupt them and instead of going forwards they start driving in reverse?

Thank God, its Friday already 😉

TGIF – not yet…

Today is one of those days when I needed a extra cup of ultra strong South Indian Filter Coffee to start my official day.

It is not a TGIF for me, at least not yet. After a lackluster night, the early morning cup of Indian Masala Chai didn’t wake me up. So I had to get my coffee fix in office while I am waiting for people to start the conference. I don’t like it when people schedule these demos and conference calls at the last minute, especially on a Friday. Don’t these people have a life? or know what it means to reach Friday after jogging through the whole week? I am just waiting for the day to get over. God, give me strength.

 

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Friday

The Cosmic Photography Challenge is a little tricky this week around. You might want to check out their posts to know about the challenge. I picked Indonesia, because that is where I have been last year. Very specifically to Bali.

What do the people over there equate to Friday? Since Hinduism is widely followed in Bali, they, like us Indians who follow Hinduism, like to do religious events and auspicious events on a Friday.  friday1
This is the temple at Ayodhya Resort where a marriage had taken place just before we had checked in.

Faded…

One of the songs we use for our warmup during our Zumba class. I absolutely love this song. I think it is apt to start the weekend (and I sometimes think that the weekend should start on a Friday and this is one of those days I wish it did 😉 ) with this song.

Olé!

While driving to office, I saw a car with the sticker on its side saying ‘Feel my love’. I was half tempted to go close and touch it with my car (aka scratch it) oh-so-lightly to see if there would be sparks between the cars…didn’t know that the devil on the left shoulder was a little dominant today than the angel on my right 😉

I get these kind of thoughts when I see such lines on the cars. The other one that really gets me worked up is ‘Catch me if you can’. Nothing like that line to actually make me rev up my engine and race the car and go to the front stop them and tell them…hell yeah!

I guess the fact that it is Friday today and I am leaving home to be with the kiddos over the weekend has got me all excited. I might not be joining any of the usual challenges (weekly photo/SoCS) this week. Before I leave, here is a song that has been playing in my head all this week (and thanks to my friend who did it as a Zumba number too and now I can even dance to it 😉 )

Have a great weekend y’all!
