Look up. Your Uber is here.
The near future of transportation might be self-driving cars, but Uber is envisioning a future where people are transported by unmanned flying cars.
During its second-annual flying car summit in Los Angeles, Calif., Uber unveiled its concept for how riders might get around by air.
And while Uber has a strong vision for what these vehicles might look like, it has no interest in actually building them itself.
Recode reporter Johana Bhuiyan, who is at Uber’s conference, wrote yesterday: “While Uber does not want to build these new autonomous aviation vehicles itself, it does hope to give its manufacturing and other research partners the tools to create this new technology in order to accelerate the path to having a commercial network of flying cars.”
