The new Google Car was recently unveiled. It is a driverless car that allows you to do a million other things instead of driving. I loved the look on everyone's faces in the video below. They clearly are thrilled with the experience of travel without control.
I think that this is a wonderful way to save energy. A driverless car will drive the vehicle in the best way possible to save gas.
I wonder if the car will become a form of a robot that can run errands for you. Think of the possibilities. You could send it out to pick up a prescription or groceries. You just have to tell the store what to order and have a gps censor notify the store when your car robot arrives. Your preselected and packed groceries can be brought out to your robot car immediately. A camera on board would let you know if it was safe to unlock the car. You get the idea....the possibilities are pretty amazing.
Oh robot car, I want you.
