What exactly mean?

How is it going to work?

This is definitely not to be used while you are driving the vehicle.

Hyundai was specific about that.

Basically, if you have the google glass device or wearable technology that they haven't specified, before you get into your vehicle, plan out your route.

If you live in a cold part of the country, you can pre-start the car and warm it up, diagnose gnostic information, get the gas for the trip you want to do, this would be the google glass app before you drive.

They keep describing this as a pre--application because this is a problem with wearing google glass while you drive.

You cover the car industry and we are talking about c.e.s., connected cars, on the scale on the cool things, how does this rate in terms of what else is happening to make cars smart?

Sure.

This is an interesting one.

The big theme recently has been self-driving deck noling.

Those are coming.

This announcement from hyundai was interesting because it is very specific, they talked about doing similar things, but as far as we can tell, this is the first specific vehicle application developed for google glass that has a release date.

Coming with the 2015 genesis sedan.

So it is very specific.

It isn't just wouldn't it be cool if we did this, but something specific we can do and coming to market and most likely others will follow.

This is a new type of technology.

Google glass is very new.

Not legal to wear these devices.

There is a problem with that.

This is very cool in terms of new technology, but we just don't know yet how big it could get potentially.

All right.

Alan, thanks so much.
