    I am sure Uber is all over this one. 

    Self-driving autonmous vehicles vs. People-carrying drones. I don't know which I want!!

    Something really don't want to ride this thing.  i know helcopters already exist, but no, I don't want to ride them either.  just don't trust it.

    and with no driver to operate it?  GOsh, that is just too scary for me. I hope this future doesn't come too soon.

      That's hilarious.  So you will someday become that person who has a fear no one else in the room does.  ...and you are bracing for it.  too funny.

      If the wheels are re-used by multuple of these vehicles, it could work.

      or else yeah, the jetway (or wherever) will be filled with these things.

      hahaha, true.  just bandoned wheels everywhere.  

      Yeah, I actually don't get it either.  Sure, they want to fly without the weight of those wheels.  Sure, maybe they can be amphibious  but what would they do on the other end?  Just prepare more wheels?  That'll just limit where this can land.
