    Post Japan's Subarus get Stereoscopic Vision

    Subaru has come up with a third system, which while not quite as advanced as KITT, is as close as we've ever seen. For a premium of $3,000 a new JDM Legacy or Outback can be fitted with twin cameras, one on each side of the rear view mirror, that use human like stereoscopic vision to judge distances and generally keep tabs on the driver. Not only does "EyeSight", as the system is called, can help you keep your distance on the highway and in stop start traffic, but also incorporates a lane departure warning system, a wake up call should everyone pull away from the lights but you (put your iPhone down), and even keeps an eye out for pedestrians while you look for that illusive break in traffic at a T-junction.

    If someone isn't proficient at all these tasks with their own eyes they should put down their keys and head to the bus stop.

    Sounds like it would be an annoyance.

    Spoken like a true MAN.

    Now try to look at it from a woman's point of view for a minute.
    While stopped at the light on your way to drop the kids off at school you are putting on a little eye shadow. All of the sudden the phone rings and now you have both hands full, eye shadow in one and the phone in the other.
    The light turns green.

    How else would you know what to do next without some male voice reminding you that you are actually on a public road and need to push on the throttle?

    Exactly. Women need men to tell them what to do.

    :waits for one of clubwrx's two confirmed females:



    You're right though. The several near death experiences I've had just this week on the road might have been avoided if some drivers had a system like this.

    Hello this is your vehicle's stereoscopic vision system speaking. DO NOT stop on the on-ramp you awful dumbass! Put down the cell phone and mcrib! That silver subaru almost ended up over the guard rail in the river! You're lucky he had his summer tires on or he'd be swimming. Goddamb, just choke or something. This has been a message from your vehicle's steroscopic vision system, have a nice day and try not to kill anyone.

    I have too but the joke only works right if you pick either a man or a woman and stick with it.

    It wouldn't have came off the same if we had put the Geico Caveman behind the wheel.

    Can't make the joke go racist cause that would be.......well.....racist.

    A Heads Up Display (HUD) would be more useful. That way I won't have look down when I'm street racing in a school zone (backwards)

    I could use this. my commute is so dull and monotonous (not to mention, 2.5hrs ea.way) that sometimes, I totally miss like 30 minutes of the commute.. somewhere, somehow, I totally won't recall a good portion of the trip.. as if I drifted off into a sleep of sorts, then woke up wondering WTF happened.. LOL

    I think if you are doing that, you should probably go get a cat scan, and put the keys down for a while. lol

    it's boring, and nothing changes, except the deer placement.

    what's worse, is I used the word 'totally' TWICE...

    What's really funny about these features is that anyone who has ever been to Japan knows that Japanese drivers could care less about things like following distance or hitting pedestrians/cyclists

    sounds cool, but it's just one more thing that can go wrong with the vehicle.
