It’s a Bird…It’s a Plane…It’s… a Car.

Is this the next Big Thing?

Mercedes-Benz have officially endorsed the flying car, or flying conveyances, more to the point. Volocopter, pictured below is a German company that wants to pave the way with flying taxis, offering a more cost effective alternative to helicopters. The most miraculous part of all, no pilot.

The flying taxi will go from “a” to “b” via software and electronics, perhaps this is the next step for commercial flights?


According to Kallenius, Dubai has committed to tripling the Volocopter model, with the trial running later in 2017. Also noting that, whilst this advancement is impressive, there is still a while to go before flying drone taxis will replace the millions of cars on the road (or the drivers in them).

What do you think this means for the future of cars?
