    Oh cool, I remember watching a show about this a year or two ago and wondering how long it'd take for someone to win. I'll have to watch it online on Wednesday.

      Yeah, Popular Science had a good amount of articles about the Grand Challenge a few months back. Interesting stuff.

        What I find most amazing is that a first year entry won and with a fairly stock vehical. Just some computer controlled actuators added by volkswagon.

        Slap some laser range finders, a video camera and some very sophisticated software and you got your self a personal driver.

        I can't waite till my Dodge has this so I can play some games on my commute.
