Technology blows my mind every day. I can’t comprehend some of the new innovations and products that people create. When self-driving cars were first introduced to the world there were many skeptics about the safety and reliance of the navigation systems. Yet I was driving from Utah to Twin Falls recently and saw a woman on the highway in a Tesla using the feature so she could take her hands off the wheel and rummage through bags in her back seat.

New Technology To Allow For Hitchless Towing

I love cars. I love reading about mods to old vehicles and the impressive technology going into new cars. The latest advancement I found is being called hitchless towing. Eventually, the technology could be used to allow any vehicle to tow any other vehicle, trailer, or anything with wheels and the proper hardware. Could you imagine a Toyota Corolla ‘towing’ a truck, boat, or camper?

Watch Video Of The Hitchless Towing In Action

Toyota has been working on the technology and CarScoops just posted a video of the demonstration.

In the video two Toyota Siennas equipped with the proper technology are seen driving, except only one of them is actually being driven by a human. It’s cool to see, and with time the space between the vehicles will surely be shortened otherwise there’s nothing to keep another car from cutting in line and possibly messing with the wireless tech used for the towing. On that note, the article doesn’t say what kind of wireless signal is being used. Is it Wifi, Bluetooth, or some specially tuned RF signal?

I’d love to see what happens when technology tries to keep a hitchless trailer safe on Blue Lakes in Twin Falls or climbing Galena Summit.

LOOK: See America's 50 Best Beach Towns

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
