Today we’re unwrapping the best holiday gift we could’ve imagined: the first real build of our self-driving vehicle prototype.  

The vehicle we unveiled in May (goo.gl/qDUtgq) was an early mockup—it didn’t even have real headlights! Since then, we’ve been working on different prototypes-of-prototypes, each designed to test different systems of a self-driving car—for example, the typical “car” parts like steering and braking, as well as the “self-driving” parts like the computer and sensors. We’ve now put all those systems together in this fully functional vehicle—our first complete prototype for fully autonomous driving.

We’re going to be spending the holidays zipping around our test track, and we hope to see you on the streets of Northern California in the new year.  Our safety drivers will continue to oversee the vehicle for a while longer, using temporary manual controls as needed while we continue to test and learn.  Happy holidays!

Is it only me? Why is the Facebook two-column format so confusing but the Google+ two-column format so intuitive? 

LOVE, the new Google+ design! Eat it, Facebook!

After just making the switch from an Android device to an iPhone, the only this on this list that I even remotely miss is the turn-by-turn navigation. Google Maps/Navigation for Android is solid, but the new IOS6 maps look incredible. Sorry Android, don't miss you!
