Self Driving Car by Google

During our   tour in Google Headquarters in Mountainview California, we got the chance to see their Self Driving Car.  They took us out of the building overlooking this beautiful hill nearby.
 I love the ecollective  van that is displayed in their   parking area that says "Recycle your unwanted electronics, it's safe, easy and free."
 It reminds me of the  electronics stuff we have here at home that we no longer need and use.  I wish I could recycle them but the problem is I don't know how to erase personal information in it that I am scared to   send it to recycling place.
 Anyway, we learned a tad bit if information about the self driving car that Google is trying to develop.  I mean, how cook is that!  It might just be the perfect car for me since I hate driving hahaha.
 Here are more shots.
 We had a blast  during the tour.  Too bad, the battery of my camera did not last very long so  I have no pictures for the rest of the tour.


I  am so glad that we all went as a family even though it dented our finances but it was definitely worth every cent that we spent.  Thanks also to Google for letting us all  come during the  awarding as opposed to two-person  only attendance.
What do you think of the Google's self driving car?  Would you let the car drive for you or  you won't be comfortable with it?

  2. An amazing Google vision. I am even surprised that Google encourages people to experience the feel of being in the car before it is released to the public.

  3. I have to confess that I'd rather be in control of the car, rather than turn it over to a computer!

  4. I am sitting here trying to figure out who is funding Google to create that car! I wonder what else they have going on. It kind of frightens me. Not sure if I could just sit back and let a car drive itself considering how wrong GPS directions usually are! That is a beautiful corporate headquarters they have.

  11. I think this would be fun to experience! I would love to just send the car to do all my mommy pick ups and drop offs!

  12. Wow that sounds so cool. I think when I was I kid I thought there would always be self driving cars.

  13. This would be difficult to get used to at first but soooo cool! I'd love to see how it works first hand.

  14. That is one of the things we've been waiting for! It would be so nice to take a nap for four hours and get to wherever it is I'm going lol.

  20. I have seen this car on TV. It is crazy to think it can drive itself. I would love to try it out.

  21. My teenage daughter is ready to learn to drive. This car would take the stress off of me to teach her lol

  22. Oh google! I think it's pretty cool. I've only ever heard of it and seen it online never in person! It would be neat!

    ReplyDelete
  23. oh wow that is so cool, i would love to tour google one day too and that self driving car is impressive

    ReplyDelete
  24. It would be so fun to work with/for Google! Oh the places they go! I agree with many comments though, I am not sure I would want to release control over!

  25. A self driving car sounds good to me, too. Sometimes I just don't feel like driving so it would be nice to let someone {or something} else do it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'll admit that it is an interesting idea. However, I prefer to do the driving myself. I can't even trust my GPS half of the time, let alone a car to do all of the driving. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow! I'd love to try this! I can't believe we have reached this stage with technology.

    ReplyDelete
  28. UUMMM… I'm kinda torn. Part of me wants to say WOW awesome! Part of me wants to run and scream into the "days of yore" when humans did human things and didn't have something electrically buzzing or doing something 24/7… AND I'M ONLY 28!! haha. Definitely a cool concept though!

    ReplyDelete
  29. wow. We humans have come up with some pretty cool things. how neat is this?

    ReplyDelete
  30. A self driving car, huh? That does seem pretty neat but at the same time.. I'd rather be in full control.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh! I think you had a great experienced and tat was great event!

    ReplyDelete
  32. In theory, a self driving car sounds cool. But, it will never be 100% perfect. I would be too afraid that a computer chip would fry and the car would go crazy and who knows who would get hurt in the process.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I Can't believe technology nowadays! This looks so cool. Very fun!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I wouldn't feel comfortable with that at all. When I am on the road, I need to be in full control or it drives me nuts. I feel all these electronic are just making people lazy. I mean what do you do during the ride, not everyone read. For me driving has always been fun, I don't see the fun in this.

    ReplyDelete
  35. What a fun app! I love seeing new technology goodies. Too bad I'm so behind.

    ReplyDelete
  36. So neat, but I'm not sure I would like to drive (or ride, I guess?) a self driving car! I'd have to see it first! I too have tons of electronics to get rid of, but don't know how to delete personal information!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I think that this is the start of something that will revolutionize transportation in the world. I hope that more features will come out soon!

    ReplyDelete
  38. It's amazing how far technology has come and the things Google has been establishing. I think I'm with a few others and personally don't feel comfortable with a car having complete control over driving and not me.

    ReplyDelete
  39. This is totally an awesome car indeed. My sons actually showed me this a while ago. I couldn't believe it even existed. Thanks for sharing.

  40. They featured a self-driving car on ABC World News last week and although it is fascinating, I think it would also be weird to just be sitting in the driver's seat and doing nothing. :)
