Uber's flying cars

Electric vertical take off vehicles in 5 years. Imagine thousands of them in Melbourne and London....you'd need them to be pilotless or the air controllers would be frenetic!

I like the idea that we could fly across our little city in less than 5 minutes for the cost of a taxi ride, but at over 200 km an hour, only the range would stop us using them intercity as well. With a range of 160 km Christchurch would need a stop in Kaikoura to swap planes or batteries

Might need to take out the carport to fashion a landing pad...

Also interesting. High speed system to get from Melbourne to Sydney in under an hour...
