Remember when we talked about self-driving cars last year? Well wait till you hear this: New York City Mayor Bloomberg signed a deal with Google to roll out 5,000 driverless taxis by 2014. By 2014! Apparently each new taxi will be equipped with an ATM and food vending machines, but that’s hardly why I’m excited. Apparently, they’ve been testing the cars since 2010 and they’ve proven to be safer, and more efficient than cars driven by humans.
Are you as excited as I am about this? Or skeptical of a car that drives itself? Let’s talk about how crazy a self-driving car seems and how it feels like we’re living in the future!
P.S. — This article is a good place to start if you’d like to know more about self-driving cars.
