That's what Arizona State University retail store manager and mother to three Sophia Lovasz asked her TikTok followers back in April. In a 15-second video we see a driverless Waymo minivan approach before Lovasz hops in and shows that no one is at the wheel. "Ngl it was trippy at first," reads a caption, as the steering wheel moves on its own. The short clip set to "Lottery (Renegade)" by K Camp racked up 1.9 million views. Whatever hashtag it's known by, this is where the far-off concept of self-driving cars is portrayed as an everyday reality thanks to posts from early adopters. Based on the success of her first post, Lovasz -- or @sosobombs -- continued documenting her experience as an early rider using the Alphabet-owned Waymo One robo-taxi service in the Phoenix, Arizona area.
