Finding your car in a car park

Finding your car in a car park

I’ve only lost my car once: the car park underneath Sky City casino in Auckland. I thought I’d memorised the number, but obviously after watching those dollars roll away, my memory became corrupted. Heathrow airport is introducing new technology that scans your numberplate as you enter the car park and directs you to an empty car parking slot. Then when you return from your trip you enter your registration plate into the ticket machine, which then displays a map of how to get back to your car. Eventually we won’t need to remember anything. The human brain will waste away. All we’ll need to know how to do is find knowledge, not retain it. The next step would be a car that can wake up and drive itself to pick you up at the gate. Now….ummm…what was I talking about again.
