Google's custom self-driving car comes to Austin

Google's cute, koala-faced self-driving car is no longer limited to roaming around Californian streets. The company is bringing "a few" of the prototype autonomous vehicles to Austin, Texas within the next few weeks. They'll stick to the same northern parts of the city as the modified Lexus SUVs do today, so don't expect to see one parked outside of Stubb's BBQ any time soon. Still, this is a rare chance to see Google's robotic ride outside of its native habitat -- so long as you aren't trying any fancy bike tricks, you're in for a treat.
