Self-driving Car

2 Apr

It has been a while since having heard about Google making a self-driving car but I never thought of all the ways it could be used:

When I first hear about the self-driving car my thoughts went to how convenient it would be to have time in the car to do things or how it could help improve safety by removing those careless (and stupid) mistakes made by drivers all the time (talking on a phone, changing the radio, texting, drinking). It never struck me that this would allow people who couldn’t drive at all to have a car and I really like how they did it with this video and not reveal it until near the end. Things like this are just amazing that something the rest of us take as an improvement to our lives could radically change someone else’s. I wish more companies would be willing to put money towards things like this and it amazes me that not a single car company is even close to the work an internet company is on self driving cars.

I suggest making it a goal (I know it is one of mine) to work for and support companies that aren’t just out for the bottom line but are abide by an all appropriate slogan of “Don’t be evil.”
