I’ll never forget the first time I sat in a self-driving car.
It was in October 2011 at NASA’s Ames Research Center. That’s the space agency’s research facility in Silicon Valley.
It’s down the street from the Googleplex, as well as Amazon and Nissan’s high-tech workrooms.
I was at Ames through Singularity University, a collection of thought leaders in the technology industry, learning about and working together on potential breakthrough uses of new tech.
Singularity University, of which I’m an alumni, is headquartered on NASA’s Ames campus.
On that day, six years ago, I got a sneak peek at an early prototype of Google’s self-driving car. And boy was it ugly.
The inside of the vehicle was loaded with computing equipment, screens, and wires. There wasn’t much room to sit.
There were sensors, cameras, radar, and light detection and ranging (LiDAR) strewn all over the outside of the car, too.
I wondered who would ever want to ride in that thing…
Today, near my home in Silicon Valley, I pass someone in Google’s newest self-driving car almost every day.
It’s made by their stand-alone self-driving business unit, Waymo…
And you have to look twice to notice anything different about it. The average American wouldn’t be able to tell.
This is a sign. While most people think this technology is years away…
I’m telling you that fully self-driving cars are on the verge of mass adoption.
Not 10 years from now – right now. In 2017.
And if you position yourself quickly, you could make a ton of money…
Hi, my name is Jeff Brown.
I’m a graduate of the “School of Astronauts,” with a degree from Purdue University’s Astronautical and Aeronautical Engineering program.
That’s the same program that produced Neil Armstrong and a handful of other U.S. astronauts.
I’ve worked at the executive level for some of the hottest tech companies in the world, like NXP Semiconductors and Qualcomm.
Both have played a major role in developing self-driving technologies.
I’m currently a formal advisor to eight tech startups – and an active angel investor in advanced technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics, and cyber security.
And last year, I picked the best-performing stock on the S&P 500.
That’s right. In early February last year, in front of a small audience of multimillion-dollar family offices, I named chipmaker Nvidia as the best choice for immediate profits in tech.
It climbed over 330% in 2016 alone – and it’s still going up.
Nvidia’s brand-new Graphic Processing Units (GPUs) were more powerful than any microchip ever created.
And you guessed it, these GPUs are crucial to the rapid advancement of self-driving cars.
This technology is moving fast and it’s about to create a new generation of tech millionaires.
I’m sure you’ve heard all the Silicon Valley success stories before, but let me remind you of the potential gains when a new technology sweeps over the mass market.
- Apple’s long-list of innovations like the iPod, the iPhone, and the Macbook computer have sent its stock up 14,298%.
- Amazon revolutionized online shopping and almost singlehandedly destroyed brick and mortar retailers. The stock has gone up 9,967%.
- Microsoft helped put personal computers in almost every home in America… the stock skyrocketed 8,933%.
- Google, the world’s search engine, has seen shares climb 1,737% since they went public.
How soon could self-driving cars overturn the status quo and make investors this kind of money?
Take a look at these pictures…
Stanford University lecturer – and Silicon Valley entrepreneur – Tony Seba uses them to explain the idea of disruption on a mass scale when it comes to self-driving cars.
The first picture is Fifth Avenue in New York City on Easter morning, 1900.
Almost every “vehicle” on the street is a horse and buggy.
Now check out the same corner on Easter morning, 1913…
There’s not a horse on the road. Every single person is driving a car.
And it took just 13 years for the picture to change that dramatically.
Today, change is even more rapid. Technological advancements happen in the blink of an eye compared with the crude tools used in the early 20th century.
Now here’s the thing…
I’m not here to talk to you about something that’s going to happen in 10-20 years.
As an investor myself, I know most folks want to make money right now, in the moment.
And I’m sure you’re looking to do the same.
As someone who’s worked with critical components of self-driving technology, and who’s followed the tech closely for years – I have to warn you…
You need to invest in this technology soon – or you could miss out on the really big gains.
Very few people outside of Silicon Valley understand how quickly self-driving technology is advancing.
In fact, I believe self-driving cars are going to reach the mass market by the end of this year.
And any day now, the U.S. government is expected to pass a law that requires all cars have an onboard, advanced computer that helps it communicate with other cars – and avoid accidents.
The effects of this immense change in a basic fundamental of life – driving – will ripple everywhere.
And you could make a fortune, if you invest in the right companies as soon as possible.
You won’t have to wait years for your bet to pay off…
You can get in on these unknown tech companies now and see their share prices multiply 10 times or more in the very near future.
At very few times in our lives have we found ourselves at a technological crossroads like the one we face right now, with automobiles.
Quite simply, in less than 10 years, our current cars and roads will be unrecognizable.
Just imagine the possibilities of fully self-driving cars…
