If you go to google today, they talk about a self driving car. It is too close to reality to be a great April fool though. dARPA grand challenge drove

Google is now talking about a self-driving NASCAR racer.
Goes much faster.

We already saw the first test run of their self-driving jet dryer, it didn't work out too well.

I test drove, well test rode, Google's self-driving car. It rolled up the windows, locked the doors and drove me to CES to visit its girlfriend Siri. (Star-crossed lovers, no?) The worst part is I got stuck with a valet parking bill for $800. I only left them alone for like four hours! What the heck did they get up to?

Self driving car? So it goes off on it's own, without you?

What is unusual about a self‑driving car? We already have self‑driving trains in London. VW have developed a tyreless car.
