Robot cars get green light

Driverless cars can be licensed in Nevada

Google's driverless cars will hit the road sooner than even I expected. I thought it would take years to get regulatory approval for them anywhere! (Apparently regulations are the main reason we still don't have flying cars.)

Nice to see a bureaucracy actually getting out of the way of progress, and not just using that as an excuse to cut corporate taxes so the rich get richer. Maybe there's hope for this world after all!
