A Bet For Self-Driving Cars

I’m a huge fan of self-driving cars.  Google’s effort to make a car that drives itself is pretty awesome. If you have read about them, read the Wired article here.  Just think of all the time and productivity you would earn if you could have a car drive you everywhere.  For all the minutes you’re in a car, you could now be doing something else.  It’ll be found time.  It’s glorious.

Because of my enthusiasm, I made a bet a few weeks ago here at work.  I’m betting that a self-driving car will be available for me to purchase before 3/1/2023.

Some details:

  • The car has to be on the road and legal to drive somewhere in USA
  • It must cost under $150k

I’m taking the under for $200 against Keith.

  1. While you seem to welcome self driving cars I prefer to drive myself. Driving is a pleasure, (well it used to be). When was the last time you went out for a drive just for the fun of it?

  2. @chrisescars I love driving for fun, but I hate commuting. With self-driving cars, at least I could get rid of the latter. There’s no reason why they have to be the only cars on the road.

  3. Looks like Google’s not the only one trying to make this happen.  Nissan just said they’ll have a car on the road by 2020: http://www.theverge.com/2013/8/27/4664272/nissan-will-bring-self-driving-cars-to-market-by-2020
