Pucker Up to Ride Google’s Self-Driving Prototype

Last Tuesday, Google unveiled their steering wheel and pedal deprived car designed entirely by themselves. The electric car uses a multitude of sensors and lasers to guide itself through streets and traffic with no interaction by the passenger. As any pilot who’s relied on terrain-following technology will tell you, it takes a lot to put your faith in the hands of technology. However, the success of this project presents wonderful possibilities for those who are impaired (either physically or through self-induced impairment). You can read more about it at The Guardian or watch the YouTube video of peoples reaction to riding in it for the first time.
