"Black boxes" for taxis
Kevin Kelly: "I saw a bit of the future in a Taipei tax cab this afternoon. Mounted on the front windshield is a $100 HD video monitor which records everything that happens in front of the car. If there is an accident, the video becomes evidence. Good news if you are a good driver -- which most people believe. Eventually all vehicles will have multiple cameras recording front, back and side."
