Google Begins Testing Self Driving Cars In Kirkland Washington

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a ghost? Who is driving that car anyway????

Well, it's just a plain old Google car that drives itself, so don't worry, you will be safe, right?

Google began a few weeks ago driving a single Lexus RX450h SUV around a few square miles in North Kirkland to create a detailed map of the streets.

Now this may sound a little bit strange, but Kirkland is actually the third city that will be testing these vehicles.

Mountain View California is the major test ground for these cars and more recently, Austin Texas was added to the list.

Now comes Washington state and with it some new challenges. These will include steeper hills and wetter and colder weather to contend with.

No matter, Google moves forward and it is safe to wonder if one day we will all be "driving" in a car that drives itself?

Pretty strange stuff indeed.
