My point was that the last self proclaimed disruption of personal transportation (the Segway) disappointed since it really didn't effect anyone.
So I guess you agree with me that the Japanese disruptions were not really all the innovative then.
Accident Avoidance is one of the few fairly good innovations in the automotive space in the last 40 years. But you will notice that it hasn't really been at all disruptive. It's simply new technology bolted on to the existing problem prone platform. You could as easily call seat belts or airbags automotive innovations. Have any of these innovations changed cars and driving in any structural or financial way? Not really.
You've yet to see a significant structural disruption the automotive space, but I'm sure you will soon. Tesla's efforts are the closest thing so far.
