I Took a Ride in a Self Driving Car (and Didn't Die)

January 22, 2022

At CES, I saw extraordinary gadgets that will probably never make it into the average home. From transparent displays to robot drummers, CES had it all. But one tech I did get to try out that you might someday enjoy was a self-driving car.

Yep, I took a ride in a car that drove itself without any human help. Well, almost without any human assistance. If you overlook the two times the safety driver had to hit the brakes to prevent a crash. So close and yet so far. Check out the top story for all the details.

Other Highlights:

  • In other car-related news, Tesla might announce a new product in the future. Only this will go on your head.
  • Forget Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E; it’s time to start planning for Wi-Fi 7.
  • Hope you like your current profile picture because the next one you use for Facebook and Twitter might be an NFT.
  • …and more!
