    Volkswagen Invented A Self-Driving Stroller And Now Your Baby Has A Fancier Vehicle Than You Do

    Please be real.

    Volkswagen asked the internet what products they could improve on besides cars and were told to explore strollers that automatically brake. So, they got to work and decided to go a step further by making a self-driving stroller.

    They got a working prototype that could not only brake, but also used an "adaptive cruise control sensor" to keep an exact distance from another "vehicle," or in this case, a human.

    That way, the stroller can keep up at a safe distance, and also brake when need be.
