Dad Pranks Son with Autopilot

There are plenty of wonderful uses for autopilot technology, but leave it to a dad to figure out the best one is pranking his son - and putting a video of his terrified kid up on the internet.

The autopilot software on Tesla's Model S includes the ability to 'summon' the unmanned car, at which point it will slowly drive up to the owner, opening up garage doors if it has to.

The video, shot using a GoPro camera positioned near the steering wheel of the car, shows the owner's son engrossed in his cell phone when the car's engine starts up.
