Divers, beware. Google has announced that their self-driving car is now ready to take to public roadways for some real-world driving experience. The adorable prototype comes outfitted with NO STEERING WHEEL OR PEDALS and, according to its Internet giant maker, is now fully functional and ready to show what it can do.
This model is the most recent in several different prototypes that Google has created, and while there aren’t conventional modes of vehicle operation, the car will come with a number of controls that motorists can use in an emergency situation. The vehicle will first be tested on a closed track, and then, in terrifying fashion, set loose on the populous to wreak havoc.
Google has ambitious plans to make self-driving cars a ubiquitous presence on roadways in as little as 5 to 10 years, giving the rest of us approximately 5 to 10 years to prepare ourselves emotionally and physically for the amazing, yet terrifying, road ahead.
