No, no, not quite like that. Maybe a little context will help. Google has been experimenting with cars that drive themselves for some time now, using a combination of cameras, radar sensors, and constantly updated maps. They hope that through this research, they can, "...prevent traffic accidents, free up people's time and reduce carbon emissions by fundamentally changing car use." Well, Google took another step forward recently by putting a blind man behind the wheel of one of these cars.

First of all, it gives us a glimpse into some rapidly developing technology that may very well change the way we live. Sure, it's still quite a ways off, but we're getting closer and closer all the time. Secondly, it lends even more weight to my proposal that we are, in fact, living in the future. The biggest downside I can think of is that it will seriously undermine the novelty of Herbie the Love Bug, but I think that's a sacrifice we'll all just have to live with.
