Uber is really pushing for flying cars. They have been extensively designing and testing the technology – really pushing the limits. But is it really a flying ‘car’? It doesn’t appear so.
The tech giant has unveiled their concept designs and it looks nothing like a car. If anything, it is more along the lines of a helicopter with wings. There are no wheels at all and with VTOL, there’s really no need. The idea that Uber is proposing will ideally narrow the cost and time of travel as we know it today.
Their plan is to build parking garages with rooftop landing zones where riders can fetch their autonomous flying machine that can take them from destination to destination.
