Google has a habit of working on crazy sci-fi projects like delivering internet access to underserved parts of the globe with balloons and developing cars that drive themselves.

Up until recently, those self-driving cars were basically commercially available vehicles that had been retrofitted to work without user input. Now Google’s going all out and building its own cars. They’re actually kind of cute, and Google’s doing a lot of work to show how these things can be useful rather than scary by highlighting how they help transport people who might not otherwise be able to drive, for instance. They’re also built with safety in mind.

And they kind of look like toys.

Here’s a roundup of tech news from around the world.
