The BBC is reporting that Dubai's Roads and Transportation Agency has announced that the city will be putting a drone taxi in action this July. Th Chinese-made eHang 184 is a single-passenger pod with a 30-minute flight time. The drone has a simple touch pad in its cockpit to select destinations -- there are no other controls in the craft.
So a drone taxi that hits 100 MPHs with a 31-mile radius? What's the catch? The fare, right? It's gotta be the fare. At least sounds more realistic than Elon Musk's obsession with underground tunnels.
