Rise of the machines

Robot skeleton army, unite!  Or should I say…

Get in your car and drive?

Robots can now apply for a drivers license in the state of Nevada.

I guess it’s not surprising that the state that legalized gambling and prostitution would also be one of the first to let robots legally rule the road.

The lack of human driver won’t be the only clue.  Robot cars will bear a red license plate during the testing phase, and then switch to green once proven road worthy.

If this all isn’t space age-y enough, know how Nevada governor Brian Sandoval was convinced to sign the licensing bill into law?

A Google campaign.  The Internet convinced the humans to give robots equal rights.

Geoff Peterson, take note…
