Google has patented a technology that will attach people to the front of your self-driving car after a collision, The Mercury News reports.The adhesive layer would coat the front of a self-driving car but be covered by something that's not sticky.
When you hit someone, the outer layer would be removed, exposing the glue.After a crash, the victim would be stuck to the front of the car, preventing them from another injury as they're thrown backwards.The existence of a patent about gluing people to cars doesn't mean that it's actually going to happen, though.
Large technology companies like Google patent lots of ideas, but only a few actually make it to production.Self-driving cars are, in theory, safer than cars driven by humans.
But they still get into accidents.
In February one of Google's driverless cars hit a bus in Mountain View.
And the owner of a Tesla Model S claimed earlier this month that his car crashed into a trailer while in "Summon" mode.NOW WATCH: We dare you to oversleep with Dwayne The Rock Johnson s new motivational alarm clock appLoading video...
