8 Crazy Types of Car Tech

A minivan, even a new one, can quickly become a rolling toy box at best, a dumpster at worst. Honda, in its quest to make the Honda Odyssey the most family-friendly vehicle on the market, has presented an ingenious, yet totally logical solution. Forget the old Dirt Devil with the perpetually dead battery and the broken dust bin. If you buy a new Odyssey the next time you're car shopping, the top trim levels will come with the HondaVAC built-in vacuum cleaner. HondaVAC lives in the van's cargo area and tucks away into a side pocket. The vacuum's hose is long enough to reach throughout the vehicle, and the waste bin is easy to pull out, empty, and replace. And hey, maybe the kids will be inspired to keep the freshly clean car a little neater. One can hope, anyway.
