– Test-driving Google’s driverless car: Look, Mom, no hands

Some of the Google driverless cars are displayed at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif., on Tuesday, May 13, 2014. The drum on top of the car spins at ten times per second, shooting low-power laser beams in all directions. Sensors detect the light that bounces back off objects, and calculate their distance and position. (John Green/ Bay Area News Group) ( JOHN GREEN )
When I first got my license 46 years ago, driving felt like one of the most important things in the world. On Tuesday, when a driverless car whisked me to work, it felt obsolete.

Google’s grand experiment picked me up at home in West San Jose and ferried me to the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. Later other cars took me and numerous other media types on a 25-minute tour of city streets.

There were two Google workers along for each trip, but for the most part, there were no hands on the steering wheel.
