The Hyundai-Uber Personal Air Vehicle

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"Hyundai is the latest automaker to turn its attention from the roads to the skies, partnering with Uber to design a concept for a future air-taxi service.

"The Korean manufacturer displayed a full-scale model of its S-A1 aerial vehicle at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week – the world's biggest consumer electronics show taking place in Las Vegas until January 10.

"The vehicle is one potential incarnation of a concept Hyundai called Urban Air Mobility (UAM), wherein small, electric passenger vehicles would make use of the airspace above cities."

I don't know. Looks like a plane to me and would fall under FAA regulations. Now, if you truly want something that could realistically be used from garage to work, then this is the future: Blackfly

I really don't see why everyone looks at Uber in such awe as the cutting edge harbinger of the future. It's a minicab firm, isn't it. That's what it is.
