Video Of Chinese Company's Autonomous Drone Taxis

February 12, 2018

This is a video demonstration of the EHANG 184 Autonomous Aerial Vehicle during manned test flights. I'm not sure that is a test flight i would volunteer for. I...am always hesitant about these new technologies. Have you heard of these mobile phones everybody's got? Total fad. "You're an idiot." Haha, well in addition to being regular dumb I'm also sick and medicated right now so my brain is even worse than normal, which was already spectacularly awful. "What have you got?" Like drug-wise? I'm not really sure what they are, I just take one every four hours. "Those are Tide Pods." I feel a lot worse but my breath smells fantastic.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to TF, who agrees we need to head in more of an autonomous jetpack direction.

    Okay, now picture hundreds of those flying food processors going into a busy city on a typical Monday morning workday. What could possibly go wrong?

    But how many Canadian Geese can those rotors chop through? 10, tops?

    Worst national bird ever.

    I hesitate because I don't trust chinese products in general. Why do they never go higher than 50' off the ground? Also did they cut out the part when the chinese guy is screaming for his life while the craft spins.

    Meh, I'll wait a few years after the tech has been widely adopted before riding in one of those things.

    1000 days of research and the same for flight tests isn’t enough for me either. I need to wait for at least 1000 missing body parts before I’ll step into it.
