Humans Can't Stop Crashing Into Google's Driverless Cars

Google’s driverless cars keep getting into fender-benders, and the company keeps stressing that the crashes aren’t a result of a computer glitch or rogue robotics system. Google’s cars are getting dinged for the same reason regular cars do: because people who drive make mistakes.

This Sensorless Flying Robot Is Like A Drunken Speeder Bike Orb

After putting its rovers on Mars, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab showed the world that billion dollar hardware isn’t always the answer.
