What annoying rubbish they are! Wipe when it's dry and don't wipe when you can barely see the lorry coming at you. Why would anyone give up control of this vital piece of safety equipment ?
But I bet you've "beamed someone out" before now. Everyone does it.Well, after two eye operations, and even before then, I can tell if it is dark and/or raining. I also have full control of my limbs, fingers and thumbs. So automatic wipers and lights are not high on my list of priorities.
