Are Robot Taxis the New Commuting Future?

Watch out, Uber. You got some competition in the coolest way to commute. And it’s premiering fairly soon.
Starting in March 2016 these robot taxi will be “tested” by travelers get around Fujisawa, Japan getting to and from their cool destinations. These passengers will test them by sitting in the drivers seat (just in case of passenger intervention needed). But really, everything else is taken care of.
Put in your destination and get whisked away by a self-driven car.

This is the first time robot taxis will be tested on real streets.

The target population for these cars is for elderly adults that have a hard time getting around themselves, so these cars are meant to help them out (awwww).
The ultimate goal is for the robot cars to be fully tested and ready to go for the 2020 Olympic Games. The technologist hope they will help safely travel all of the guests and travelers in the city during that time.

So, is it the commuting way of the future?

I say yes! Pick up the speed Google! Because maybe I’ll be hoping into one of these little babies and going for a ride pretty dang soon. As long as the robot lets me listen to my NPR podcasts and pick the radio station, I’m good.

This totally reminds me if the cartoon The Jetsons. The car in the cartoon flew on its own sometimes. So the Jetsons are our future (scratching my head) lol. This is awesome, can't wait to see it live. But knowing me, I'll probably be to scared to get in one. Lol.
I want one!! Dude, I could sleep while it drove me around. Win!!!
I am totally down for this. Maybe a few months ago I heard about a self-driving car. Imagine...go out and get drunk and never have to worry about having to drive home. It's like having your own car driver, but it isn't human. I am sooo excited about this.
I know right?! the main purpose it was created for elderly people who got in accidents but decrease in drunk driving is definitely a win! @alywoah Also, imagine how this would be for efficiency too?! we wouldn’t have to go and pick up anyone! just send the car! @ButterflyBlu
@Karencorchado isn't this coolll!!!!????

Virtual Reality Lets You Hang With Totoro
British VR developers FirePanda have been hard at work the last few years. While most of the anticipation surrounding Virtual Reality has been game-centric, there are other VR developers who understand that there might be people interested in VR, but not in the gaming aspects of it. FirePanda are using VR for larger goals than just games (though they do have a game or two as well). They've used VR as an educational tool, for medical students to get some virtual hands-on practice in a RESUS room. They've also now begun rolling out little VR experiences taken directly from the films of Studio Ghibli. Check out this VR video: If you don't have any kind of VR headset like myself, this is a hard video to watch properly. The VR displays a mirrored image onto both of your eyes, hence the two displays in the video. Without the headset, this is just a strange video. But iconic. Everyone who's an anime fan has seen Totoro, and even if you haven't, you'd be familiar with the rotund spirit. So far, they have VR-d scenes from My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, and Howl's Moving Castle. My personal favorite is the Howl's Moving Castle one, because the scene they picked is the fields outside of the house from Howl's childhood. That is definitively my favorite setting in the film, and the chance to experience it in VR is astounding to me. I don't have a VR headset yet, but if I ever get one, this is the first thing I'm gonna do. Check out all the anime VR stuff FirePanda has to offer here.

Minhyuk Hurt Again?
Multiple fans at a fan meet in Manila, as the video was posted by a girl there, a fan reportedly asked him if his leg was ok due to how he looked in the first couple of songs, he responded saying that he was fine. But also seen in the video at the end he bowed at his part because he knew it was obvious he in fact did hurt his right knee and was messing up during the dances. It is very painful to watch, seeing how much it hurts him.
