Future Technology: Google’s New Self-Driving Car

google-selfdriving-car-booooooom1Google’s functional self-driving car with steering wheel.

The trick to this video could have become tiresome pretty quick but there are so many well though out sequences that it stays fresh until the end. I love the part where the colourbars become books.
