I can’t get this out of my mind. Driverless cars are have had and are having a huge impact on our thinking. I see the Google car tooling around several times a year now. I saw it a couple months ago over by the Apple mothership. But the visual image of a motorcycle going by itself will be so striking it will change hearts and minds. It will completely change what we think a computer can do.
Soon we will have open market self-driving cars, but even those of us who anticipate these things will not trust them. I won’t: I will be a Nervous Nellie the whole time the thing is driving. But consider once they get good enough you have a stadium motocross with a pack of guys chasing one robo-bike and can’t catch it. That entire stadium will be transformed.
I can’t help thinking there must be a way to make a buttload of money off of this.
