Seems that electric cars are not a trend anymore, flying cars –  that what everybody wants now.

Stay with Nexter to see the first time Volocopter air taxi takes flight in the US.

Big flying drone?

No, it’s not a giant drone. Actually, it’s not a car nether.

During the Consumer Electronics Show 2018, Intel presented an 18-rotor air taxi prototype known as the Volocopter VC200. It flew for the first time in North America.

“What Intel sees in this technology is an enabling of a whole new market, with different segments and different partners,” Jan Stumpf, the chief of architecture for Intel’s drone group, says. “But Volocopter is of course now our biggest and most important one.”

The tech company has been working with the German aviation startup for a while now.

The Volocopter VC200 is a prototype and its more polished version is called the Volocopter 2X. The Volocopter 2X features a flight time of 30 minutes and a maximum range of 17 miles, though Volocopter says the batteries can be quickly swapped to compensate for those numbers until the tech improves.

So, perhaps in a few years we’ll forget about Uber and will be using flying taxi instead. Hope, we won’t be stucking in air traffic jams for ao long.
