      Basically Google have the tech, and are pushing for them to be legalised on public roads so they can be tested properly.

      I bet there will be LOTS of angry taxi drivers when these babies are introduced! We might even see some man vs machine violence :x

      I prefer driving my car, but if I dont have one, I'd like to try it out. However, stay in a car with a machine alone is kind of scary movie :D

      Google gets Nevada driving licence for self-drive car

      Driverless cars will soon be a reality on the roads of Nevada after the state approved America's first self-driven vehicle licence. The first to hit the highway will be a Toyota Prius modified by search firm Google, which is leading the way in driverless car technology. Its first drive included a spin down Las Vegas's famous strip. Other car companies are also seeking self-driven car licences in Nevada.
