It's not world domination. It's because Google has so much money, they don't know what to do with it or more accurately, there really isn't any place to invest it. The economy is bad & that causes under consumption. In other words, no one is buying anything or they are only buying what they need. That forces business people to let their money sit in some account, which they don't want to do. So, some genius decided to try cars. They tried phones before that. I don't care what they try. I probably won't be buying it or using it.

They already have the maps of all the roads so why not use it for something like this? I think it's awesome.

I guess DOn2007 has a good point and since they have the resources (like sterweber said) why not?

Their maps are already used for GPS systems and things like that... in fact the google maps (the fact that it is free) enables some cheap GPS systems/solutions.

Amazing!

Too bad it looks ridiculous with that giant spinning laser on the top. Hey if I could do my homework while I commute to school, I'm for it! I wonder if they'll ever really release it, and if they do, how much it will cost.

I'm just waiting for their next concepts of this car and see what they will do about that laser... maybe they'll find a really nice way of hiding it... or another alternative altogether.

I am sure right now things are in the very early development stages, and cosmetic issues are not really a concern right now. I think they are more after functionality and to see if they can even get it to work right. Once they get that down I am sure they would try to work on ways to make it more hidden or compact.
