Google will start testing its newest development (self driving cars) in Nevada. They will be the first licensed automated vehicles in the U.S.
I can see it now. As we’re going down the road, a computer voice will yell:
“Will you kids stop arguing back there?”
“Stop it or I’ll turn this car around and we’ll go right home.”
“You should have gone to the bathroom before we left.”
“I’m never using Google Maps again.”
“I don’t need to stop and ask for directions. I know how to get there.”
Personally, I hope the program knows when I want to take a restroom break.
Google has got a new plan,
For a self driving car or a van;
Nevada said sure,
If it’s really secure,
If it’s bad we will put out a ban.
Here’s something I wrote a few years back. It was an entry for Video Maker Magazine’s, Short Video Contest. It won second prize. Its had quite a few views on YouTube over the years. It’s a spoof of late night TV commercials. Hope you like it.
CAVEAT…It’s not for the faint of heart. Animal lovers may not like it, but it’s part of the circle of life.
I hope this works. I haven’t tried to insert a video link before.
It’s called, “The Roadkill Grill”.
Cadillac’s Super Cruise model has a new device which is expected to become standard equipment soon. The option works like an advanced cruise control, but it also navigates the car to avoid crashes.
A guy in a self driving Cadillac,
Hopes he won’t run into a caddy shack;
It wouldn’t look cool,
For this new driving tool,
The owner would certainly take it back.
