Google Bike

While you probably have heard of the Mic Drop Debacle Google had on April Fools day. What you may have missed is the Google folks in the Netherlands actually had a fun April Fools joke. This one should have been what made the rounds on the interwebs.

This spring, Google is introducing the self-driving bicycle in Amsterdam, the world’s premier cycling city. The Dutch cycle more than any other nation in the world, almost 900 kilometres per year per person, amounting to over 15 billion kilometres annually. The self-driving bicycle enables safe navigation through the city for Amsterdam residents, and furthers Google’s ambition to improve urban mobility with technology. Google Netherlands takes enormous pride in the fact that a Dutch team worked on this innovation that will have great impact in their home country.
