    Driverless cars promise safer, but also, a lot more boring drives. According to Ford, you'll be kicking back and watching a movie on your windscreen while cruising down the motorway.
    Ford has filed a patent for an "Autonomous Vehicle Entertainment System" to be used in self-driving cars. In simple terms, that's a windscreen that turns into a 50-inch plus movie screen.
    From the accompanying image, Ford's mock-up envisages a drop-down projector screen as the main viewing method. Ford suggests that viewing material could be transferred to smaller screens when the driver is in control, "such as a display in the dashboard".
