Night Meeting

When Google announced that it had purchased Boston Dynamics, I couldn't help but think of Ray Bradbury's tale of Night Meeting, from his Martian Chronicles. The story begins when a man from Earth and a Martian encounter each other on a desolate road one night on Mars. The man is driving an old pickup truck, while the Martian is driving a multi-legged vehicle. They look out on the landscape and realize that they come from different times, but they can't determine which of them is from the future and which is from the past.
