Pioneer is currently working on the Penguinbot, designed to sit on your car's dashboard and warn you of upcoming traffic lights, chide you for your constant speeding and blurt out other assorted admonitions. It's in the prototype stage, and Pioneer even plans a feature that reminds you that you're wandering around aimlessly, as if you didn't already know that.

Just what we need, another nagbot. It would be about five minutes until this little guy found his final resting place just behind my right rear tire as I backed out of the driveway. No thanks, Pioneer.
