Do you ever think about how a road trip is different today than it was when you were a kid? Today's cars, trucks, and SUV's are extremely different than the ones originally built. Included in the evolution of the vehicle was the addition of many technological advancements, making cars more than objects used to get us from point A to B. Now, they are more like entertainment centers on wheels.
Thanks to the contribution of many inventors, some vehicles come equipped with movie screens, music centers, remote functions, and smartphone connectivity. We may not realize it, but these features make road trips much more fun. Having the ability to turn on a movie for the kids in the back to watch and to wirelessly connect your phone to play your favorite songs or stream online radio stations in your car are options most cannot imagine living without. Many companies are already working on completely autonomous vehicles.

Would it make the drive uncomfortable?
There are generations who have experienced long road trips without all the devices we are used to today. But at least they had the radio, right? Yes, but only after 1929. It wasn't until almost 1930 when the car radio was invented. Can you imagine what those road trips were like?!
Two words... REALLY uncomfortable. Thank goodness for the comfortable rides we have for going on road trips today.
