"Friendly" AI?? God dammit look at who's developing it - the dude is the closest thing to a Bond villain that we'll see in our lifetime.

And wtf are those called "Sky taxis"? It's a damn monorail - I can call my asshole a flower garden but that doesn't mean you'll enjoy sniffing it

Not even that.  It could easily be malicious.  If all cars are talking to each other, you could have your car communicate bad info to dupe other cars.  The problem isn't unsolvable, but it could lead to the situation you described..

Drunk off of anger from TWD's season finale last night.

That, and AAPL closing up 1% instead of session highs of 1.9%.

😭

Can you imagine the fun the first person to hack the driverless car system is going to have?

Btw I totally forgot to speculate on Tesla stock. I saw at one point it had gone up 10% the day after launch?

When driverless cars get a couple generations old and some hit the $500 mark thing is going to get interesting.

I'm happy...but I should probably sell it before people start questioning how long it will take to produce 300k of those things...

Driving with electricity is no different from driving with gas. Superchargers work ok for the occasional road trip (although isn't the 20 minutes figure only for a half charge...that's not great), but for most uses, charging at home will be sufficient. I'd also expect to see more parking lots with power run to every spot as the cars get more common...maybe not a high power charging system, but even a 110v line to plug in while you are at work (at 3 miles per hour or whatever) would still be something. Unless you think that not having to stop at the gas station every few days is "revolutionary".

I think this will be feasible if the charging stations have some sort of a fee (like a credit-card swipe). Otherwise, as more people start using car chargers the electricity will become a real cost for the landlord. Right now I think a lot of these things are more "look at me!" novelties than anything else.

My previous employer not only let you charge for free, they got the best parking spots.  I wondered what would happen once more than two people bought one.

Wasn't there recently an accident when a Google car hit a bus when it merged too quickly thinking a bus would yield to it? This was post avoiding a sandbag in the road. First accident caused by the driverless car system afaik. All the others weren't the cars fault.

Man, at my work we have to pay for $1 an hour electrictiy. You think we'd get it for free (as we lease 2 whole floors of the building), but noo. I know that sh*t does not cost $1 an hour.

 

We do get reserved spots though.

I'm thinking more along the lines of public parking, like at the grocery store or other retail. The more people that have electric cars, the more demand there will be for places for people top off the battery as they travel around on their daily errands/commutes.

Agreed.  The technology has to become affordable for everyone, even down to the <$10K car buyers otherwise people will not adopt the technology.
