Update on the vanilla man and the car

So a couple posts back(or maybe I forgot to mention) that the vanilla man is buying me a fully customized jeep from a Marlin’s player. He knows my commute to work has been just terrible. The Marlins player doesn’t want to sell until spring, which means I’d have to make this two hour commute during the winter, which is no fun. Soooo we’ve been looking around and searching for a car for the time being and we’ve decided on a 2012 Volkswagen Eos and I’m absolutely obsessed with it! We pick it up today or tomorrow right before we go to Vegas 😍 I’m so excited!

This past week, he’s furnished my bedroom, made me a custom piece of art for the wall, and took me to dinner and ice skating.

And not once did he try to ask me for sex!

Next stop, Vegas 🤑

Take us home, Olli. 

The next generation of self-driving cars is one you can talk to. Local Motors, creators of the world’s first 3D-printed cars, just launched Olli, the first talking shuttle bus to use cloud-based IBM Watson IoT for Automotive as a brain.

A combination of four Watson APIs (Speech-to-Text, Natural Language Classifier, Entity Extraction and Text-to-Speech) gives Olli the ability to recognize and react to things like “let’s go downtown” or “what’s good to eat around here?” as you and up to 11 other people go from point A to B.

If you’re looking to catch a ride with Olli, you can find it making the rounds in Washington, D.C. Next stops: Miami and Las Vegas.
