    I know the absolute last thing we want to be doing is encouraging more people to take planes - especially on short flights - but these concept designs do look sci-fi cool.

    When there are electric planes or those run from a forcefield it will be cool.

    Maybe teleporting will come first?

    It's almost inspiring how Uber keeps coming up with new and innovative ways to lose money.

    If these videos included a simulation of how the vehicle copes with one of the rotors failing I'd be more reassured.

    The eight rotor one might cope. That four rotor one is taking you for a quick trip back to earth I suspect.

    A nice PR exercise but I bet they were kicking themselves when this story came out the same day - Helicopter pilot killed in NYC skyscraper crash

    If they can get some kind of hot air balloon tech under control I might be able to get behind it but even tiny drones make an irritating noise so would hate to see more of that!
