This article discusses Google's efforts to make a car that drives itself. There's a video that shows a car driving around, but the people inside aren't doing anything. I think it's crazy that technology has advanced to the point where someday we might not even have to drive. It sounds kind of dangerous to me, but I'm sure if the cars were on the market in the future they would be very safe. Sebastian Thrun is the engineer in charge of this project, and he found his inspiration through a childhood loss. His friend was killed by a car so he has worked to make driving safer. Maybe some day the driving world will be completely different thanks to Google.
