Self-Driving Lullabies

My wife just gave birth to our first child (not the child in the image— that’s a stock photo) two weeks ago, and he’s a total joy.

He would be more of a joy, though, if he could sleep through the night. Right now he’s on a nocturnal schedule, sleeping through chunks of the day and screaming all night.

One way to calm him down is to strap him into the car seat and drive him around town.

So last night, between the hours of 4am and 5am, I drove about 15 miles around San Mateo County. It worked.

When I mentioned that to people in the office this morning, one of them said, “Wouldn’t it be great to have a self-driving car for that?”

It would, and it will 🙂
