Enviroment Activated Power Windows
Ever had an occurrence where you forgot to roll up your car's power windows and the interior of the car got completely drenched after a rain storm? Or perhaps you didn't crack open the power windows while parked during a fiery heat wave and object to getting in your car. Worst yet, your pet was left there and is getting roasted.

For these, and a whole lot of other scenarios, it would be nice to have the car's body computer automatically activate the power windows. Many newer cars already have a rain sensor, an external (or internal) temperature sensor, and a multitude of other sensor which can enhance the system. So in one case the rain detector senses the rain and informs the body computer to roll up the power windows. will automatically roll up the power windows. These features would be enabled with the computerized interface available on many newer cars. And in a not too distant future with internet-enabled car, you will be able to control and check the status of these features.
