SPHERES: An approximation to the future of flight

We all have seen movies like Matrix, Star Trek and Star Wars where ships somehow land pretty much by themselves, the pilot has nothing but press a couple of buttons and the ship will land.

People at MIT in joint research with the NASA are working together to be a step closer to this reality.

SPHERES project aims to have autonomous mobile objects capable of autonomous flight and interaction, and are currently being tested in zero gravity environments in the International Space Station.

What are your thoughts on this, would you ride a vehicle knowing that most of the control is being performed by a computer.
