Seeker avionics

Not sure how many taildraggers people will feel the need for one of these in their “low & slow” birds but I have a feeling we’ll be hearing more about this new technology soon. Have you heard about the VP-400 “Seeker” avionics, an artificially-intelligent avionics hardware? In the event of a catastrophic engine failure, it automatically calculates glide path to the nearest airport. “This system builds the power-off constant-glide instrument-approach that starts at your current location and terminates at the runway that is most likely to result in a safe glide down to landing… in the blink of an eye.”
