Self-Driving cars aren’t coming fast enough

I hate driving. Not because i’m not an excellent pilot of automobiles (a lot of people seem to assume that if you dont like driving it must be because you’re bad at it), but because I see it as a waste of time. I don’t enjoy the process of getting from A to B. I just want to be there. I’m ready for teleportation. but until then, I at least don’t want to drive. It takes too much brain power. I can’t create and ponder and solve the riddles of life while I’m driving because the sector of my brain that is looking out for other cars and maintaining distance and speed is, I guess, the same as the creative side. or maybe its just that it takes too much juice to do the navigating that theres no reserve left to do other things.

Google released this promotion video last month:

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.
