DARPA Robot Car Crashes Into Ford Taurus

Although the DARPA Grand Challenge has already declared a winner and we've even done a wrap-up post already — we felt the need to run this week-old video of the Axion "Spirit" racing vehicle taking a left turn directly into one of the human-driven Ford Taurus chase vehicles. Yes, This may be our first non-human Hoon of the Day, but with all our DARPA coverage from the past week or two, we felt it necessary to welcome rather than discriminate against our new robotic driving overlords.

What they need to do is put Roomba wall/Taurus avoiding technology into the grille and DARPA has their work done for them because what you CANT see is the robotic chick in the driver's seat with the phone on her ear and applying mascara.

My vote is it's a photo-chop, no doubt.
