No one is surprised

We’re not even sure how to address the news that a 3D-printed, self-driving minibus named "Olli" has been unveiled by Arizona-based startup Local Motors because, honestly, it would have been more surprising if there was not a 3D-printed, self-driving minibus named "Olli" that was being unveiled by Arizona-based startup Local Motors. We’re pretty sure we all just assumed that there was a 3D-printed, self-driving minibus named "Olli" set to be unveiled any day now by Arizona-based startup Local Motors long before we ever read the article about it. Nothing has ever made more sense.

Olli has been developed in partnership with IBM's supercomputer platform Watson, the one that’s really good at Jeopardy! because apparently sitting around the house, being really good at Jeopardy! got boring and it decided it was time to learn how to drive.
