It's 1956 and General Motors takes a peek into the future

Hands-Free Cars Take Wheel, and Law Isn’t Stopping Them.  (The New York Times, 5/2/2015)
A General Motors promotional film envisions the future: Drivers enter the highway, put their cars on “autopilot” and sit back as the vehicle takes over and heads for the horizon. The film’s date? 1956.

And here's the video, starring Dad, Mom, Buddy, and Sis!  (And they sing, too.)

My favorite part starts at 5:52, when the family begins a minute-long jaunt through a massively intertwined spaghetti junction.
