The Future is Coming With These Flying Taxis
Yes, you read the title yet – flying taxis are looking to be a possibility in Dubai within the next couple of years. In collaboration with US-based flying transport company,┬áVimana Global, prototype trials have already been under way with the launch goal of 2020.

Jumping right into the technicalities of it all, the flying taxis are a combination of an airplane, helicopter and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) thats operated through blockchain technology. Essentially, the taxis will be completely driver-free and passengers’ journey will be controlled via drone remotes. To simplify the logistics, check out the youtube video below that explains how the whole operation is conducted.

Have a look at the Vimana Global website for more information on the upcoming project in Dubai as well as their company as a whole if you’re interested in the possibilities that the future holds.
