Anti-Theft Car Seat Identifies Driver With 360 Sensors That Monitor The Butt


With all the advances in technology, anti-theft measures for automobiles really haven’t moved along at the same pace. If someone steals your car remote, they can get in, start your car, and drive off with it. There has to be a better way to protect your vehicle from theft and that’s exactly why some researchers in Japan have come up with a way to use your butt as a protective measure.

More specifically, they have developed an anti-theft car seat that can effectively identify the person sitting in it. The seat itself is outfitted with 360 sensors and it measures the pressure applied at each of these sensors, generating a 3D representation of the weight and weight distribution. The way you sit is like a fingerprint.


Yes. Who else but the Japs.

The concept is being developed and is scheduled to be available in 2-3 years.

Question - Weight gain/weight loss? Won't that affect the pressure applied on the 360 sensors?
