Car Key Heading To Extinction?

In yet another sign of the times searching for your car keys may be as foreign as a pager; ironically thanks to the same invention that ended the pager's reign...the cell phone. Actually your smart phone.
-Chris Malone

The American Automobile Association predicts smartphone apps will replace traditional car keys and it may be sooner than you think.  Some cars already use electronic keys and fobs  and the AAA thinks this technology is simply paving the way for phones to take over, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Already in the technology club are Chevrolet and Nissan, both which already have mobile apps that can be used to monitor and control certain car functions. Hyundai also unveiled plans for a smartphone that can work with a vehicle to perform some functions as well.

“Traditional car keys will likely become obsolete and be replaced by technologies offering even greater security and convenience,” John Nielsen, AAA director of automotive engineering and repair told the L.A. Times. “Motorists will need to adapt with the technology to avoid the hassle and expense of smart key replacements.”
