Just watch the incredible footage of what these new machines can do, and tell me they're a bad idea.

Driving a car, when you think about it, is kind of terrifying. You're in a giant hunk of metal just barreling down the road with other giant hunks of metal going in all different directions, and you can't get distracted even for a second (by, say, the buzz-buzzzz of your phone) or you might die. Or kill someone. NO PRESSURE, right!? Riiiiiight.
