I like where Ideo is going with their self driving car concepts. I'm a bit torn personally. I love cars and I love driving. I also love the idea of getting work done in the car, or getting up at dawn, loading up the mountain bikes and going back to sleep until we get to the trial head.
For society and our planet, I'm 100% ready to embrace self driving cars. I just hope there is still an opportunity to enjoy the act of driving in the future.
You can read an interview with one of Ideo's industrial designers, Ricardo Figueiroa, over on Designboom.
