First Drive in the Google Self-Driving Car

It will be cool to see these as production models one day, it's going to be a while. For now, enjoy the video on it.

Fully autonomous driving has always been the goal of our project, because we think this could improve road safety and help lots of people who can't drive.

We're now developing prototypes of vehicles that have been designed from the ground up to drive themselves—just push a button and they'll take you where you want to go! We'll use these vehicles to test our software and learn what it will really take to bring this technology into the world.

I bet you that before we know it these will be all over the place. Especially as taxis that you can just order to your house with an app. 15 years from now they will be everywhere, mark my words.

what are people going to do once the robots take all the jobs? Surely we don't think people will be free to do whatever they want?

I mean business loves the notion of eliminating overhead, especially if its in the form of unpredictable labor, however what business also loves is profit. How can people continue to purchase and feed profit into these companies if they no longer have jobs providing them income to dispose of?

Some of the more brilliant out there seem to think all the displaced employment can simply be funnelled into robot repairs/service. Yes a nation of repairmen, can we say spurious? Or how about the fact that the robots that were supposed to free us are now our chains. If we're serving the robots who's steering the ship?

If you're an optimist, we will start giving people a negative income tax so that people have money even if they aren't working. Work weeks will get shorter. Everyone will be happy and it will be paradise on Earth.

A pessimist would say that there will be more income disparity. More ghettos. More power concentrated in fewer hands.

I'm betting on something in between though. Probably skewing more to the pessimist side.

Negative Income Tax? Not when the national debt is up to $17 Trillion, they cant even collect enough to pay down the interest on the debt, and you you want them to start giving people even more money not to work?

good read on why this is pie in the sky... http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/201...in-three-sips/

Self-driving cars are nothing new today after a few years of development within the industry. However, not every country carries such models and the market has not been fully established with regular cars still being the dominating type. Nevertheless, improvements are gradually seen and I am sure the industry will continue to prevail for many more years to come.
