Video: How to park a Twitter controled Mercedes CL

What do you think Mercedes engineers are doing when they are bored? No, they do not design a new model. Instead they are playing with Twitter controlled cars. Wait, what? Yes, you read it right.

Two guys with lots of spare time apparently conducted the first driving tests for a Tweet Race Prototype based on a Mercedes CL. But what is this car more exactly? Apparently is a car engineered to be controlled only by Twitter commands, no driver at all. And the first tests they did were pretty successful. The two guys were able to "drive" the car into a parking lot, and even park it next to a Mercedes SLS AMG. A little bit closer its true, but there was no driver behind the wheel, so... Anyway we know lots of people who can’t do even that!

Well, for me I was impressed with this technology! I can’t imagine that we could actually can control a car using social media! That’s a great innovation!

I agree on you Jroc7. The invention is kind of pointless! This thing was the same with those Chinese guys that runs their car using the SmartPhone.

If you have one of these, please stay away from my car. I liked it better when Mercedes drivers had to wreck their car themselves rather than let a computer wreck for them. If you don’t want to drive a car, take a bus, please.
