Would you trust an astronaut to drive your car? Are you comfortable asking for your car’s number in exchange for a ride to work?
If you answered Yes to any of these questions, the chances of you being transported to another planet are very slim indeed. But there are some people who could benefit from the technology, if they could afford it.
One such person is the founder of an e-commerce business called SkyDrive who works for Microsoft’s new technology.

The third is with crowdfunding for the business through a Kickstarter campaign, but currently this is being conducted with a tiny fraction of SkyDrive’s users who are paying from small amounts to support their business.
