Self-Driving Cars Are Still Terrifying

Self-Driving Cars Are Still Terrifying

I totally believe that in 10 years time self-driving cars will be as normalised as cruise control, but right now I imagine stepping into a Tesla, pressing the self-drive button and fully shitting myself for the first ten minutes of the drive.

This video doesn’t help.

It’s supposed to help, but it doesn’t help. The soundtrack is the Benny Hill theme for God’s sake. Word to Tesla’s marketing department: I don’t want to be hearing Benny Hill when watching a man in a self-driving car.

Maybe that’s just me.

Regardless, this is awesome. I get these real mixed messages in my brain when it looks like a goddamn ghost is driving a car, but the rational side of me is truly amazed.
