I'm Driving!: Blind Man Demos Google's Self-Driving Car

March 30, 2012


This is a video of a blind man going for a spin in Google's self-driving car. Why does it have a steering wheel and rear-view mirror if it drives itself? No clue, I feel like you should have haggled with the car salesman a little more. Dammit, I don't WANT pedals and I'm not gonna pay for them! The car is pretty impressive and dude even swings by a Taco Bell drive-thru for lunch because you don't have to be able to see to appreciate a burrito. You do have to be able to taste though, so go easy on the flaming cocktails.

Hit the jump for "some of the best driving I've ever done".

Police: Blind Driver's Trip in Google's Self-Driving Car Was Legal [pcmag]

Thanks to Lukas, who tells people his car can drive itself then takes his hands off the wheels and swerves into the oncoming lane for a second before yelling SIKE!

  • Everybody must take care of their car, good thing their is a new technology that allows auto driving. I wonder if there is also auto carwashing :)

  • So now the braille on the buttons on the drive through ATM's can finally be used.

    Goodbye auto insurance. Goodbye traffic. Goodbye inefficient driving patterns. Goodbye highway patrol cars sitting on the side of the road, waiting for their next ticket. Goodbye poor driving practices which cost billions in repairs every year. Arguably, goodbye individual auto ownership. Goodbye accidents. Goodbye expensive taxi fares.

    Apple's busy making mp3 players and phones, Google is busy trying to change the world.

    love Google even if they want to sell my soul for a profit.  Sorry I meant my information not my soul.  Still love Google.

    So if he's caught with some Marijuana then does that mean the car is legally responsible?
