I, For One, Welcome Our New Insect Drivers

It is interesting that Uber seems to be using human drivers as necessary meat sacks to test the system until self-driving cars are available:

When Pittsburgh wakes up on Wednesday morning, some residents will have the choice of going about their day in an Uber that drives itself.

The launch of Uber’s self-driving pilot program marks the public unveiling of the company’s secretive work in autonomous vehicles and the first time self-driving cars have been so freely available to the U.S. public.

I begin to wonder how many cars I will own before it is cheaper to just use a service like this?
