How nice would it be to climb into your car for a leisurely drive and not even have to touch the steering wheel? Traditional car and tech companies alike are betting there's a market for self-driving cars. Among them is luxury car maker Mercedes-Benz, which has developed a prototype of its own.

The F 015 concept vehicle from Mercedes goes beyond automated braking and steering systems. This car doubles as a "virtual living room" with a lounge-like seating arrangement for up to four people.

Whether the car is truly running autonomously in San Francisco or under human control is unclear. Either way, this car is certainly something to look at.
