Easy Rider

Wired is blogging now, but so far nothing blows the mind. More importantly, Stanford won this year’s Grand Challenge! If you’ll recall, last year, DARPA promised a million bucks to whichever team could create a driverless vehicle that would automatically navigate a treacherous obstacle course. No team won. In fact, the best-performing vehicle conked out after eight miles on the 142-mile course. This year, DARPA upped the ante to $2 million, and voila! A winner.

Update: Previously unknown fact — Congress wants a third of all military vehicles to be riderless by 2015.
