The key to making commuting easier... may come from a couch.

FOX News Radio's Chris Hoenig explains:

FOX on Tech.

Calling all gamers... Ford is looking for game developers to help solve some of the mysteries of commuting, coming up with ways to end gridlock and improve the efficiency of city transportation.

(Bartholdy) "We want to use gameification to create an engaging and innovation solution to keep city travelers moving in a seamless and stress-free way."

Challenge creator Bjoern Bartholdy says games are mostly about rules, mechanics and patterns, many of which apply to the ways people navigate from one point to another on the street.

A $10,000 prize awaits the winning team, plus the possibility of future investment from Ford to take the ideas from virtual to actual reality.
