It is not every day that we find a story as heartwarming as this. Thanks to advanced technology and research from Google and others a blind man was sent on the ride of his life today as he was able to successfully drive a car all by himself for the first time. Of course he was not technically driving, Google’s autonomous car was, but it is still an incredible story none the less.
Google has been developing this program for quite some time and today they decided to change a man’s life with it. Steve Mahan is legally blind and today he was given the opportunity to drive Google’s car. Thanks to the incredibly advanced technology of the autonomous car Google did change this man’s life in a number of ways. Google has not made this technology publicly available for obvious reasons, but the ongoing testing will likely prove that the technology is in fact very effective. Google has never really made it clear just how awesome this technology is and given that it works for a blind man it is pretty clear just how amazing this will be. Self driving cars have been in the future for such a long time that many people believed it would never be a reality but now Google is beginning to prove that it is going to happen. This is amazing news in every way because it means that the future is quickly approaching and Google is leading the way.
