Uber Reveals Brand New Air Taxi [Video]
The future is now!
In something straight out of The Jetsons, Uber revealed what looks like a giant drone that will eventually be used as an air taxi. The 2019 Consumer Electronics Expo is going on now (Jan. 8-11), and many companies bring their futuristic gadgets to the expo.
Also revealed was a folding LG flat screen TV and a self driving motorcycle.
In the video, the hosts talk about the Uber air taxi and how in just two years time, the company plans on having them in working order. Oh yeah, they eventually want them to be autonomous, so you won't have to have any awkward conversations with your driver (pilot) while in the air.
The air taxi will move as fast as 150 mph. That would, obviously. get you to farther destinations quicker.
Imagine calling for your ride and this thing lands for you to hop in. Then you just float away like you're Bruce Wayne leaving an extravagant party or something.
