Self-driving cars--fantasy and reality: Student sustainability video festival 47

I promised to resume the Student sustainability video festival with an entertainment-related episode at the conclusion of "Test Tube and DNews on burning trash for energy."  With no further ado, here are the videos from the most popular student talk of last summer, beginning with Automated cars from Minority Report.

Autonomous self-driving cars: driverless, automated vehicles with rotating passenger compartments from the movie Minority Report.
So far, that's just science fiction.  Here's the reality: Personal transport pods unveiled at Heathrow Airport.

Heathrow Airport has begun to transport passengers in computer controlled, driverless, car-sized personal "pods".
They're not the cars from "Minority Report," but they're cool none the less.  As my friend Nebris is fond of saying, sci-fi is now.

Stay tuned for more installments of this series.
