Google gives I/O attendees a close-up of driverless car (but no rides)

Here's a look at Google’s autonomous car in photos

While Google didn't make any announcements about its driverless car efforts at Google I/O this week, it was showing off its vehicle.

In the middle of its annual developer conference in Mountain View, Calif., Google let attendees get a closer-than-usual look at the autonomous car.

Google announced two years ago that it had built an autonomous car from the ground up. The vehicle has no steering wheel, brake or accelerator. And, for now anyway, the cars still have safety drivers riding in them as they are tested on highways and city streets.

At I/O, Google didn't allow people to ride in the car or even see it drive around as thousands of attendees milled about. This was more show than tell.

Google’s fleet of driverless cars currently are driving on the streets of Mountain View, Calif, Austin, Texas, Kirkland, Wash. and Phoenix, Ariz.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
