Tyzx, a company seeded by Paul Allen and based in the luvverly environs of Menlo Park, California wants to load up your interior with all-seeing eyes that will map the position of the occupants, thus allowing airbags to deploy more effectively during a crash. Japanese safety-systems manufacturer Takata Group has given the Tyzxes a cool four mil to hasten their work, which also includes exterior auto-vision systems to help detect pedestrians and other motorcars. We'd totally buy a car with twenty eyes. But we'd have to paint a giant skull on the hood.
