Google self driving car test drive...

Could not resist posting this as I grew up with sci fi notions of autonomous transportation systems and hand held computers... and I realized recently that I am now living in the future. Just look at what an iPhone does not compared to the original Mac in 1984! And now this from Google who is already has 200,000 miles of testing on their self driving car.

Here is the description from Google about this video...

We announced our self-driving car project in 2010 to make driving safer, more enjoyable, and more efficient. Having safely completed over 200,000 miles of computer-led driving, we wanted to share one of our favorite moments. Here's Steve, who joined us for a special drive on a carefully programmed route to experience being behind the wheel in a whole new way. We organized this test as a technical experiment, but we think it's also a promising look at what autonomous technology may one day deliver if rigorous technology and safety standards can be met.
