Flying cars

This week, Google introduced to us to their self driving car. No steering wheel, no brakes, just sit comfortably and let the car drive you. Quite an extraordinary engineering accomplishment; perhaps this will redefine the meaning of 'public transportation'. Imagine a steady stream of cars, where you can sleep, eat, work on your laptop, and enjoy the view all in a stress free setting. It is not exactly the flying cars we were promised in past, but close. And just think of what you'll do with all that free time; no longer wasting your time having to communicate with fellow commuters with awkward hand gestures and elaborate finger language. ---->
