When my parents were out for a visit, we stopped by the Google campus. Outside of the usual awesomeness like the crazy good food and posing in the sculpture yard, we also saw a Google self-driving car! I wasn't quick enough to capture a shot of it then though.
As it turns out, it's pretty rare to catch a glimpse of the futuristic technology on the road. A few weeks later, Mr. Palindrome and I were returning from the airport in the middle of the day. Lo and behold!
This is pretty much my dream. I want flying cars, sure, but I really hate driving, so this development would enable me to have the freedom of wheels without having to have the moolah to hire a driver!
Any other self-driving car glimpses?
