Funny/Not funny: Volvo's crash avoidance feature fails during demo

Boy, I feel for Volvo right now. During this UK demonstration of the new S60’s collision avoidance system, something… went wrong. Nobody was hurt, luckily, but I get the feeling somebody’s paycheck is going to be hurting pretty soon. Apparently the engineer who prepped the car just messed up the batteries. Sure, this kind of things happens, but man, when you invite a hundred journalists to watch you not crash a car, there’s really only one thing you absolutely cannot do. Guess what that is?
