The Air-taxi

Perhaps a year and a half ago, as the public became more interested in drones, and as the dream of autonomous cars continued to more forward, I had a moment of clarity when the concept of an air-taxi came to mind.

This week at CES, a Chinese company announced their work on a very similar concept:

For now, there's no "taxi service" element to it, but that would obviously be a layer that could be applied to the idea.

It will be interesting to watch this space over the next 20 years to see if any companies are able to make the idea fly.
