Self-driving diners, massage salons, mini cinemas

Imagine these converted to mobile:
  • massage salons
  • diners, where you can have a meal while it takes you to your destination
  • mini cinema where you can watch a movie of your choice during the commute
  • psychotherapy office
  • what else? It could basically be any service that lasts for the duration of a typical commute

Rather than drivers, people working in one of these could be waiters, masseuses, therapists, etc.

I agree about autonomous vehicles being the future and providing entertainment, but I think a flying car would solve traffic problems and make the trip exciting. The next level would be autonomous flying cars.

Goran Radanovic Not bad:) I think this might be an option for some people but it will be at least 50 years before it's accessible to all people whenever they want.
Also, the sky would look pretty bad with all the traffic up there

I was thinking karaoke booths could also be implemented too, for commuters looking for a fun respite.

The most fulfilling and pleasant experiences for me (I imagine there are many others like me) are those that involve interacting with other humans.
Vehicles should have circular seating arrangements so passengers can face others at all times. Furthermore, games/activities that can be done within a short period should be provided.
However, many people won't step out of their shell if they are not given a good enough reason. So, I suggest a points reward system to get things rolling. In time, they will engage in these activities because they find meaning in them rather than for the points.

Maybe 2 contrasting areas. One like you describe and the other to provide maximum privacy/seclusion for people that want to be left alone, relax, do some thinking, etc.
Then people can take a seat where it suits them better on a given day.

Currently, these are possible with a driver, but soon enough they will be self-driving. Described here and here.

"Do Not Disturb" mode turned into "Your Time" Mode

You all heard about the Do Not Disturb mode on smartphones. Sometimes people enable the mode to be turned automatically when they enter the car, but sometimes people turn their internal do not disturb mode without any smartphone feature and just focus on driving. It's definitely beneficial and I see an opportunity here.
Why
  • Make the "Do Not Disturb" mode more appealing by turning into into "Your time" mode
  • Enjoy the great content while commuting (new songs, videos, news, books, etc)
  • Deliver personalized mind-relaxing content without browsing for it (to make it safer)
How would it work
Since we tend to turn the Do Not Disturb mode while driving and focus on the important stuff, it could be turned on while commuting of any type (car, bus, taxi, train). At the same time, stuff that is important to us and/or that we "save for later" could pop up. If we are driving, the stuff would be read out loud, but if we commute on a train, we could be awarded by saved, filtered, and personalized content that a phone kept for these moments. That would make us anticipate every commute to find out what cool personalized stuff did the algorithm brought up this time :)
PS Yes, the emphasis should still be on safety, especially if you drive
