    Someone drove past me this morning near Central Expressway/Charleston & he was sitting on the wrong side of the car.

    Did you happen to notice which side of the car the steering wheel was on?

    When you see only passengers in the rear seat, that will be a real driver-less model S!

    I don't know if I will be comfortable sitting in the rear seat of the self driving car... I saw an ad of car company where this guy is sitting in the rear seat and gets bored

    The ad focuses on making a mock of the self driving cars...

    I think you'll have a decade or so to get comfortable with it. We don't have input-less driver-in-driver's-seat cars yet :)

    I can't remember, Audi or BMW? He was also on one of those things that transports your car, right?

    I agree, almost. A decade+ before full autonomous driving is out. I think way less before semi-autonomous driving is out (get me from point A to point B, and the car does it's thing on the highway for example, but you need to do the first/last 5 miles of the trip).

    I completely agree with Max on this.

    We'll see. It's been 4 years since Google got laws changed so they could even test their driver-less cars. We'll have tons of foreknowledge as more and much more widespread laws will need to change to enable these sort of things. I hope it comes tomorrow. But I think it'll come in 20 years.
