We see a lot of stupid ideas from assorted inventors in the automotive sphere and a lot of stupid apps from coders. This, on the other hand, is a brilliant example of both. The idea is that the driver/phone owner uploads his measurements, weight, and a picture of himself sitting down to the phone, and when he sits in a SmartFit-enabled seat, it automatically reads the info from the phone and adjusts itself to fit.

No doubt ze Germans will be fighting over who gets to play with this technology first.
