Flying Taxis To Take Off This Summer

If you’re in Dubai.

Come July, massive self-flying drones will carry single passengers on short trips around the city. They can handle up to 220lbs and fly for 30 minutes before needing a charge. As long as they don’t go rogue, you should get where you’re going.

If Dubai’s architectural stunts like The Palm Jumeira and Burj Khalifa haven’t already captured your attention, this flying taxi might finally entice you to board an Emirates flight. It’s a place worth seeing, too surreal to describe.

In fact, I nearly took a job as a snowboard instructor at Ski Dubai. But after spending an hour in that gigantic freezer I changed my mind. Ski areas do not belong at shopping malls in the middle of the desert.
