Even the Jetson’s had a steering wheel.

What!

How are we that far into the future that we can’t even say we are living like the Jetson’s anymore?

Google’s Self-Driving Car Project description explains the reason behind this new adventure in technology.

“Fully autonomous driving has always been the goal of our project, because we think this could improve road safety and help lots of people who can’t drive. We’re now developing prototypes of vehicles that have been designed from the ground up to drive themselves—just push a button and they’ll take you where you want to go! We’ll use these vehicles to test our software and learn what it will really take to bring this technology into the world.”

In this video, volunteers, young, old, male, female, the blind and her trusty companion take a ride in Mountain View, California.

Check out the first drive.

What do you think of the new car? Would you hang up your keys for good and start cruising the streets in this?
