Where Are My Flying Cars, Dr. Kaku?

Dr. Michio Kaku is on my T.V. telling me that someday we will have cars that drive themselves. We will get in the car, sit down and simply tell the car where to go. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

My response? Yeah, smart guy. Like I'm gonna believe that crap.

The show I just turned to is called 2057 and is on the Discovery Channel. Though I'm trying to work right now, the good doctor's voice is recognizable enough to me to catch my attention a little bit and when he started to talk about self-driving cars it really perked up my ears. Unfortunately, I'm not excited by his statements but just irritated.

I've heard this promise or suggestion for years. If I'm not mistaken, my parents' generation was also told that we would have this technology by now. Over-promising and under-delivering makes the customer very very angry. I'm that customer right now.

So, no thanks. Don't get me wrong, I respect Dr. Kaku quite a bit. But peddle your future cars somewhere else. I am not buying.
