Is It Dangerous To Talk To A Camera While Driving?

Tom Scott tries out the University of Iowa's National Advanced Driving Simulator. It's a cool machine, a pod that moves while showing you a virtual reality world. The simulator puts you, the driver, in a variety of situations to test how well you control the vehicle.

The scientists who operate the simulator test drivers who text, talk on a phone, eat, are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and other situations. Scott was interested in testing a behavior he indulges in often- talking to a camera while driving. The result? He missed seeing things that he never would have realized in a real driving situation -like signs. Even when you keep your eyes on the road, if you are more busy thinking about anything else besides driving, that could happen to you. -via Digg
