Take My Money: The Self-Driving Drone (for People) is About to be the Thing



I’m freaking right now.

For the longest time, everyone has been talking about flying tech and we haven’t seen shit. Yeah, a drone, but drones are boring. Until now.

According to Mashable, there’s a 500-pound aerial drone, called the Ehang 184, has enough room for one full-size human. Yes, this can soon be your new method of transportation. The drone was revealed at CES 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

What’s the best part? This fucking thing is self-driving. Literally all you have to do is take the one seat provided, buckle up and enter your desired destination. The drone will then navigate you there itself.

The official website reads,

Ehang 184 is the safest, smartest and eco-friendly low altitude autonomous aerial vehicle, aiming to provide medium-short distance communication and transportation solutions.

For now, China-based company Ehang Inc. will attempt to develop flight test criteria that meets the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) guidelines here in the United States.

I’ve never been happier.
