LOL. Ford Global Technologies filed a patent application on August 20, 2021 that describes “systems and methods to repossess a vehicle.” Basically one machine contacts another in this case the bank or debt collector contacts the engine. In a move obviously prompted by lawyers, the system can be overridden for a medical emergency.

Where is all the cool sci-fi stuff we were promised? All we’re getting is dystopian control!
