@prabhakar, I agree. Hence the difficulty of pulling off self-driving cars. There are so many unseen factors on the road today, when compared to the controlled airspace. But the analogy does apply in a sense that both self-driving cars are marching toward "auto pilot."

If I may add one more thing. As to what you just described as the challenges autonomous cars facing, it is true -- and that's why we also need to build up Car to Car and Car to Infrastructure.

@Zewde: 3DTV is entirely unnecessary. It is a luxury...

They said that about color TV ... then HD TV (they also said it about adding sound to movies in the 1920s LOL)

@max, Seriously? When it comes to 3D, you do need to accept the fact that it is really going NOWHERE at this point. Even Hollywood is scaling back 3D film production, and there is no TV programs (including sports) in sight offering 3D coverage!

I accept nothing of the sort. I prefer to live in a fool's paradise. I agree with Dire Straits who sang "I want my 3D TV" (or words to that effect :-)

True but that is not to say it is going nowhere forever. I believe it will be common place in the mid to long term simply because it is a more natural way of perceiving scenes.

I recently received an email from someone we'll call Martin (because that's his name). Martin's message was short and sweet. In its entirety it read: "You need to see this!"
