Breaking News: Robots Break New York Transit Strike


Just kidding. But we have a fairly large Gizmodo brain trust in our commentors and readers. This is what I want to know: when will a large city like New York have a completely automated train system? Clearly, the current system—in New York, that is—could not support a 20th—let alone a 21st—century automated infrastructure. But what would need to happen to make these pension talks kind of moot?

Please discuss.
