They started with Search, moved on to Blogger, Maps, Desktop, Earth, Mail, Reader, Picasa, Docs, bought YouTube, and created Chrome. Google has done just about everything on the internet.

But self-driving cars? This is ridiculous.

Obviously a lot of work went into this project, and it’s probably safe to assume that Google is the only company in the world to have 12 driverless cars on the road at this moment, having been accident-less in their past 300,000 miles.

The only thing that stands between us and self-driving cars becoming everyday norm is legislation allowing these driverless cars on the road. California recently passed a law that will permit self-driving vehicles on the road, joining Nevada and Florida.

“You can count on one hand the number of years it will take before ordinary people can experience this,” said Google cofounder Sergey Brin.
