Google self-driving car at some red lights in Mountain View
Google’s self-driving cars, of which there are usually a dozen on the roads of California and Nevada at any given time, have now logged 700,000 miles of awesome accident-free autonomous driving.

You really should watch the video — it’s one of the coolest bits of tech that I’ve seen in a long time.
