From Secret Agent Autos to No-Pilot Planes

 - Oct 28, 2009
It’s not that hard to imagine an ‘I Robot’ world in which ‘automatic’ driving actually means the car drives on it’s own. I mean, we’re already there, it just doesn’t have a mass appeal yet. There are driverless cars, buses—even pilotless planes! It seems like an easy solution to traffic jams and accidents, but I don’t know if I would ever be comfortable giving up control to some piece of machinery. What are your thoughts?
