In this interesting article taken from the London Press Service we learn that those crazy Brits have bankrolled an interesting project that is hoping to develop customizable vehicles. The Foresight Vehicle initiative joins a consortium of manufacturers and universities in the pursuit of producing cutting edge automotive technology and it's bankrolled by the UK government to boot. Basically in the somewhat near future (as any good sci-fi movie will tell you) a customer walks into the showroom, gets a 3-D scan of his body and then custom seats will be made to his specifications along with the proper control placement etc. This "rapid manufacturing" will be an interesting technology to keep an eye on.
