A short TED talk about Google's self-driving car. This is the sort of thing commonly found in science fiction and futurism presentations, but the technology exists now. It is the sort of device that reminds us about robotics and 'intelligent machines.' It is the sort of device that reminds us that there is very 'cool' technology that will continue to wow us, but at the same time it will make us think more and more about the consequences, intended and unintended, of the development of smart machines.
