Ah, good old Hondizzle, always on the frontward tip of making up stuff to make our lives way better and cooler and safer. Now they've invented this camera that can see at night in order to detect wayward pedestrians who've maneuvered themselves into a vehicle's path. The infrared technology behind it isn't new, but tossing it onto a production car is a fairly recent development— Cadillac introduced a similar system a few years ago, although no one ever really said if it worked or not. I'm going to assume we would have heard more about it if it worked. Like Caddy's system, the Honda device will provide visual and audio warnings, although there's no word on whether Honda will use a heads-up display to pop up and scare the crap out of the driver, thus causing him or her to lose control of the car and nail the pedestrian anyway.
