Geek of the Week: SmartWheel

Prepare to make texting and driving a thing of the past!  This device clips on to a standard steering wheel and senses when there are two hands on the wheel or just one.  It also can tell when there are two hands very close together, like if both hands are at the top of the wheel so you can steer and text at the same time.

If the Smart Wheel senses just one hand on the wheel, it lights up and buzzes until both hands are steering.

But it doesn't stop there.

The sensor also records all of the data it collects and relays it to the companion app on Mom and Dad's phone.  (same goes if the device it removed or otherwise tampered with).

The inventor (20-year-old T.J. Evarts) is currently showing off the Smart Wheel at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Featured on ABC's Shark Tank, this invention is expected to hit the market later this year and retail for about $200.
