Obvi­ously Google has been working at the whole self-driving car thing for some time now. But the vehi­cles they've had on the road previ­ously have simply been existing cars that have been modi­fied as needed.

What they are unveiling here is a car that has been designed from the ground up with the idea that it's going to drive itself. So no steering wheel and no pedals. Which, it turns out, gives you a lot of extra leg room.

As someone who spends about 2 hours (and 80 miles) a day driving, I'm very keen to see further progress with this tech­nology. I can see that the complete absence of a steering while might take getting used to though.
