    Not sure if this has been posted yet, but it's a pretty excellent story:
    A legally-blind California man got behind the wheel of a modified Toyota Prius and drove to Taco Bell and the dry cleaner in a successful test of Google's self-driving car.

    Steve Mahan, who says he is "95% blind," sat in the driver's seat of the Prius but never touched the steering wheel.

    "Look, Ma, no hands," Mahan joked during the drive, which was posted on Google's YouTube channel on Wednesday.
