At the Consumer Electronics Show, General Motors unveiled a pod-like car that can drive itself. This emerging technology is certainly good news for those of us who do not like to drive. There. I said it. I am a man and I don't like to drive.
Unfortunately, GM estimates that these vehicles won't be market-ready until the year 2030. Geez, by that time, there might not be a GM anymore. In fact, I'm willing to bet there won't be.
The other downside is that the current top speed of the vehicle is only 30mph, making it little more than a high-tech skateboard. That could make it difficult or at least tedious to get to work on time. Still, it's a step in the right direction. Not only with the elimination of driving but the curtailing of carbon emissions. These cars plug into a wall outlet and run on battery power. Anything that helps reduce greenhouse gasses and gives us a leg up on global warming is ok by me. In fact, it's an imperative.
Feeling sick tonight, folks. This is all I've got. Sorry.
