These drones look interesting but if you're claustrophobic you might have a panic attack. These things can become commonplace. You order a drone on your phone like you order an Uber car.

Chinese passenger drones are coming to Dubai


Ehang 184 starts its drone limo service in July 2017

Welcome to Dubai, home of the world's tallest building, an indoor ski resort, and—coming in July 2017—a drone passenger service featuring China's Ehang 184.

Made by the dronemaker Beijing Yi-Hang Creation Science and Technology Corporation, the Ehang 184 is a "passenger drone" that can carry a single person (and luggage) of up to 220 pounds. With a four-rotor layout in the form of a giant quadcopter, it has enough battery power to fly a range of just over 30 miles, at speeds up to 100 miles per hour. The Ehang 184 is also highly autonomous; while its flight computer is linked to a command center (with some human oversight), the flight computer is capable of making emergency landings, self diagnosing issues, and avoiding obstacles.

If these drones turn out to be safe, it will be like everyone has access to their own helicopter and can be carried around the city. They will have to control how many of these things are flying around in the air but you can see the slow upward trend of technology and then it will advance so rapidly these technologies will be like the internet in 2030-40 or sooner. There could be a breakthrough in A.I. or quantum computing that will accelerate things even faster.

Don't you find it ironic that a Stone Age government enjoys a 30th century Country.


It's oddball stuff.

Ummm...I know...right...?

Kinda like that particular stone age culture country wanting to build the first city on Mars...without having launched more than bottle rockets to date...

Hopefully they don't run out of oil before that...OR...civilization moves beyond petroleum based fuels...cause without that...their 30th century country will be right back to the stone age...

What exactly does the UAE export...beyond oil and Islam...?

Oddball stuff indeed...
