Reality Car Windows Unveiled By Toyota!

Toyota is announcing new technology in their vehicles. The Japanese car manufacturing company unveiled a new window in a new manufactured vehicle where children can write on windows or make a sketch of outside objects.

For bored adults it’s really fascinating, and hopefully this new tech will be enough to keep consumers from worrying about a third recall.
