Is it just me or is anyone else not impressed with this news? Apparently after a year there air taxi is able to take off, hover, and land again. Whoop dee doo. I wish Uber would stop trying to reinvent the wheel and be all "trendy af"

    Bets on when this will actually be available? I read an article every other day claiming this kind of tech is "coming soon". I call BS.

    haha, I mean they are making a sleek helicopter that can manuever around a city so while this doesn't sound too impressive I think it's actually quite amazing. I wish I had the mental capacity to just invent things like this.
