No punch line lol. It was an uneventful ride but very interesting. I do a lot of Lyft and Uber, and Google owns a company called Waymo that has swarms of those things in my part of town. I got 'invited' to sign up and got 15 free rides. The technology is amazing albeit scary. There is a 'sitter' that is in the driver's seat but they don't touch anything and you are asked to pretend they aren't there. The thing is loaded with sensors, cameras, LiDAR etc. There's a tablet on the headrest that shows some of the imaging the car sees. It recognizes people, barricades, traffic signs and signals and keeps track of every moving object within a few hundred feet of the vehicle. Skynet is coming, let's just hope it's much more benevolent than it was in Terminator.
