What if your phone drives the car for you? Such seemingly great idea may have entered your mind. But, the more important question is if it’s really safe and practical. This funny video about Steeri will tell you.

Though certainly funny, the video does pose the current limitations of technology. Voice recognition is still far from being perfect that we can’t rely on it for tasks like driving. Even Google’s self-driving vehicles reportedly come upon road accidents every now and then, though fortunately fewer in occurrence than accidents befalling human drivers.

In the meantime, we do have real auto makers that are gradually introducing today’s popular mobile platforms into their cars’ dashboards. For one, the 2014 Honda has iOS synergy, while next year’s Kia and Hyundai cars will have the Android-based UVO 2.0 for navigation. The first commercial flying car is only a couple of years away, too.
