Is the ap­ple watch

Is the ap­ple watch worth it Is the driv­e­less car for real

Wear­able tech pro­vided a glimpse into the fu­ture – even if the Ap­ple Watch was more ‘meh’ than mes­meris­ing. Steve Jobs’ legacy took a fur­ther hit with An­droids over­tak­ing Ap­ple in the smart­phone mar­ket the first six months of the year, though it was Elon Musk’s Tesla brand that made in­no­va­tion its bitch in 2015. The Model X SUV elec­tric ve­hi­cle nudges 100 km/h in just 3.2 sec­onds and cuts as fine a fig­ure as any lux­ury Euro­pean mar­que. And then there’s the Tesla ‘Pow­er­wall’, a bat­tery that har­nesses off peak power (via so­lar or the grid) for use dur­ing peak times.

GQ INSIGHT: Driver­less cars will be vis­i­ble on roads by 2020. Google and co just need to work out how to hu­man­ise the tech­nol­ogy and stop peo­ple from ref­er­enc­ing a cer­tain scene from geek com­edy Sil­i­con Val­ley.
