level 5 FSD will be released soon. Conventional steering wheel and stalks will be things of past :)
Could I have a little of what you're on, please?
There's a bug difference between what the car is hyped as doing and what is possible and legal. Level 5 is never going to be legal with sensible regulatory authorities with present cars. Might be in the US though....

Here is a new review by Marques Brownlee. In case you do not know him, he is a technology reviewer and a Model S owner. He either has or borrowed a Plaid Model S for this review. The thing about his perspective is that he is a highly respected reviewer of high tech gadgets like phones, so he is used to reviewing how well interfaces work, and is possibly more objective and thorough about the human interface aspects of the yoke and buttons than some reviewers. Quite interesting.

I watched Marques Brownlee's review and appreciated his observations/commentary of the yoke and I think he makes some valid points about touch buttons on the yoke. I also think he is on to something when he says the earliest buyers are enthusiasts and early adopters and are more open/willing to change their habits and adapt to using yoke instead of a wheel and buttons instead of stalk. Other buyers may not be that open-minded.

I have an MS LR on order for my wife. While I am a car guy and there is no doubt in my mind I would be ok using the yoke, my wife is the opposite. I am watching/reading yoke reviews very carefully and may end up cancelling the order just because of the yoke since the car is going to be for my wife.

Thanks for that, good video!
