Google's executive chairman says rapid advances in technology are turning science fiction into reality, meaning people soon will have driverless cars and the ability to experience being in another place without ever leaving home.

Eric Schmidt issued the predictions during a packed conference hall at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, the planet's largest cellphone trade show.

Schmidt says the digital revolution eventually will allow consumers to place holograms of themselves elsewhere — with functions so they can hear, see and feel what it is like in the remote locations.

He also told the crowd Tuesday that driverless cars tested by Google Inc. have logged more than 200,000 miles.
