    Back-Up Sensor

    Post  Psycho144 on Fri Aug 18, 2017 5:48 pm

    [size=19]Lots of the newer cars have a Back-Up Sensor that warns the driver before the rear bumper actually comes in contact with something.[/size]
    Who invented this sensor?  
    I bet you think it was Ford, maybe GM, how about Chrysler, No? then how about Mercedes Benz, or possibly the French or Italians? 
    No. It was a Chinese farmer. 
    His invention was simple and effective. It emits a high-pitch squeal  before  the vehicle backs into something. 
    Here's his first prototype...

    That sensor could turn out to be pretty dangerous! It might warn you that you hit something at the same time it crashes through the front and gores the driver.

    One of the most important reasons for studying history is that
    virtually every stupid idea that is in vogue today has been tried
    before and proved disastrous before, time and again.
