The state of Nevada -- in a move that reinforces its laissez faire approach to, well, everything -- has "issued Google the nation's first license to test self-driving cars on public streets" after conducting safety demonstrations for the DMV on the Vegas Strip.

"They're designed to avoid distracted driving," said DMV director Bruce Breslow. "When you're on the Strip and there's a huge truck with three scantily clad women on the side, the car only sees a box."

Google's license covers three test cars; the technology is expected to be ready for the market in three to five years.
