Flying Cars Are A Bad Idea

Our culture vultures return this week with topics on surveillance, coming of age and some bad technology. Joining Kam Raslan this week is BFM's resident correspondent on all things technology, Matt Armitage; joined by Skip Intro's Julian Yap, making her debut appearance on the programme. First up is Kam, assessing his emotional reaction to Google's data tracking system and its implications. Julian speaks on the coming-of-age genre in movies and the future of her relationship with the genre when she eventually outgrows them. And Matt Armitage explains why flying cars are not such a great idea and its impossibility to guarantee all-around safety for its passengers.
