Most people are familiar with the cartoonist The Oatmeal by now. I was given his book “How to Tell if Your Cat is Trying to Kill You” for Christmas. And it was an eye opener, let me tell you. Another eye opener was his serious, yet funny, take on self-driving cars. The cartoonist got the chance to try one out recently and did a blog post about it.
While I’m used to The Oatmeal’s content being snarky most of the time, he took this opportunity to point out some things about self-driving cars that many people haven’t realized. Such as the huge opportunities they will present to elderly people and those with disabilities.
He also calls the cars “Skynet Marshmallow Bumper Bots” and shares some theories on why they’re so darn cute.
