So it will paint a box on the image, showing you how your car lines up with anything next to it, just like reverse cameras usually do. The car could also have a range-finder built into the camera pod, or whatever, to look for and warn the driver of fast approaching vehicles in adjacent lanes. That would pretty much eliminate the need for 3d.

The automatically controlled clutch may be faster, but there's just something about doing it yourself that makes you feel more connected with the car, and just plain more enjoyable to drive. Plus, there's no nanny to get in the way. It would drive me crazy if I requested a shift and it refused, or if there was a noticeable delay.

You seem to be trying to suggest that having irrational beliefs is not a detriment to scientific understanding, but unless you are able to set them aside and be purely rational in your work, it most certainly IS going to be detrimental. If someone is not able to base their work on rationality/empiricism, then it will have no value scientifically.
